Description - Don't Worry, Hugless Douglas by David Melling

David Melling is one of the leading children's author/illustrators today and his second book about Douglas the little brown bear is as funny and compelling as the first. It combines brilliantly imaginative illustrations with an endearing sense of what it is like to be a small child learning about the world.

Douglas' dad gives him a wonderful new woolly hat and he races outside to show it off. In his excitement, he doesn't realise that it is unravelling... His friends have helpful but useless ideas of how to put things right and it is left to the little bear to work out for himself the best thing to do...

Buy Don't Worry, Hugless Douglas by David Melling from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.

Book Review: Don't Worry, Hugless Douglas by David Melling - Reviewed by (26 Apr 2013)

Don't Worry, Hugless Douglas, is a very cute story about a young Bear who was given a gift by his Father, a lovely wed knitted hat, with the instructions to look after this very special hat.

However, something happens to the book and then walking through the woods various animals offer assistance to mend the hat, with various levels of success, while saying Don't worry Douglas.

A very amusing book, which takes children through a little adventure with Douglas. Nicely illustrated with large colorful pictures. An ideal book for a young reader starting out, a book which you can re-read over.
