When Dave loses his favorite toy, Dogger, he is very sad. But when Dogger turns up for sale at the neighborhood fair, everything seems all rightuntil someone else buys him before Dave can get the money! This timeless classic uses simple words and detailed pictures to show the distress the loss of a toy can cause a child. Filled with humor and Shirley Hughes’s artful touch, this is a book for young readers to tackle by themselves, as well as a delight to read aloud.
