Description

A new edition of this bestselling story with a striking new cover.

Hugless Douglas is very excited about his birthday surprise. But when the surprise turns out to be his over-excited twin cousins, Douglas is sure this will be the worst birthday ever!

This is the fifth adventure in the hugely popular series, which has sold over 1.4 million copies in 26 languages to date. David Melling is one of the UK's best-loved author-illustrators and his stories combine 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 and a number one bestseller, selling over 450,000 copies.
