Join Douglas for festive fun in the eighth Hugless Douglas adventure. This bestselling series has sold over 1.4 million copies to date in 26 languages!

Hugless Douglas knows what Christmas is all about – it’s excitement, snowing sheep, finding a tree, sledging and and being with friends. And one more thing of course… Christmas hugs!

David Melling is one of the UK’s best-loved author-illustrators and his seventh book about Douglas the 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.

Hello, Hugless Douglas! was a World Book Day picture book in 2014.

‘A new Hugless Douglas book is always a cause for celebration.’ – Daily Mail
