David Melling is one of the UK’s best-loved author-illustrators and his stories combine brilliantly imaginative illustrations with an endearing sense of what it is like to be a small child learning about the world.

Brought to life by its appealing and colourful cartoon style characters, and a good dose of child-friendly humour... just the sort of thing to make little ones chuckle and stimulate their growing imaginations.

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

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
