The perfect bedtime story by the author and illustrator of the number one bestselling Hugless Douglas series, David Melling.

Hugless Douglas has built up a huge army of fans - and no wonder. He is wonderfully appealing and his adventures are irresistible. It's a lovely story and a great one to share with a fussy eater.

A very realistic portrayal of the baking process with a three year old. Hugless Douglas fans will enjoy all the action.
