The illustrations show a gentle countryside in mostly shades of green, grey and apricot -- a perfect backdrop for the picturing of all the animals Douglas meets
This warm and funny tale tackles the subject of best friends ... This simple story is brought to life by its appealing and colourful cartoon style characters, and a good dose of child-friendly humour
Hugless Douglas needs no introduction ... Somehow through all the daftness (the bouncing bunnies are particularly, satisfyingly, silly) the reader has been on a real emotional journey and will close the book smiling and reassured
David Melling's fourth book about Douglas is as funny and compelling as the first, combining endearing illustrations with an acute sense of what it is like to be a small child learning about the world
Bright and cheerful and positive
Hugless Douglas goes from strength to strength ... Warm and reassuring
A lovely story about friendship and being there for others. Warm and reassuring.
