We are delighted to announce that our children's picture book of the month is the bear with the big heart, We Love You Hugless Douglas by David Melling.
This wonderful book is both written and illustrated by David Melling and follows Hugless Douglas as he journeys to find a best friend with Flossie the Sheep. Yet perhaps what Douglas is looking for is right under his nose...

David Melling has created a lovely book with bright illustrations which Amelia (2 years) has thoroughly enjoyed. Every time I get to the end she says 'Again!' I know what series I will need to get to send to Santa!!
As with the other 2 douglas books we have this one doesn't fall short - The pictures and story are very heart warming . infact i think its already becoming a favourite !! - thank you so much for our copy - bedtime stories are so so important - its fab to get a new one to add to the mix.
I thought this book was lovely. The illustrations are beautiful, and the writing is easy for children to understand. I liked that the font size was large and there weren't too many words on each page. Children seem to get bored if there is tons of small writing in a book, so this was perfect. I also enjoyed the nice message that came across in the story.
My eldest (5) really enjoyed this book. It is written is a simple way so that the messages in the story would be apparent to fairly young readers; mainly friendship, determination and manners. The illustrations are lovely and really enhanced the story.
