What to expect

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Dogger by Shirley Hughes, read by Olivia Colman.

When Dave loses his favourite toy, Dogger, he is very sad. But when Dogger turns up on a stall at the garden fete, everything seems all right – until someone else buys him before Dave can get the money!

Voted the public’s favourite CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal winner, this is a tale to which all children and their parents can relate, brought to life by Olivia Colman’s heartwarming reading.

Critics Review

  • This is Hughes’ most heartwarming picture book . . . Hughes has a kindly, inexhaustible eye – she misses nothing . . . Her drawing is invariably superb and usually describes a reassuring world for children – sometimes happier-than-thou. She has illustrated more than 200 titles – she is a virtuoso

  • Shirley Hughes is a national treasure

    Philip Pullman
  • Delightful

    Financial Times
  • A heart-warming story . . . Shirley Hughes’ warm and deceptively simple story is a perennial favourite among children and experts alike

    Psychologies Magazine
  • There are certain books that should be in every family’s library and Dogger is certainly one of them
