Any Hugless Douglas book has us hip hip hooraying and beaming like idiots. What's not to love about Hugless Douglas?!
It's Douglas' birthday and he's really excited about his birthday party. But much to his dismay, his overly enthusiastic cousins bomb in and take over everything. Douglas is upset and heads off on his own - and has a bit of an accident!
We really enjoyed watching Douglas' great group of friends rally together to try and help Douglas and also the efforts they go to, to try and cheer him up. Plus, everything looks a little better with the arrival of cake....right?
The illustrations are so very wonderful, each page is super busy and has so much to delight in. Douglas' friends are everywhere and we love to watch their antics unfold.
Happy Birthday, Hugless Douglas is yet again another big winner form the super talented David Melling - who never fails to amaze and delight readers of all ages. It has some fab little friendship positives and is just all round fun with a capital F. We want many more Hugless Douglas books please!
5 / 5 stars
