Don’t Worry, Douglas! by David Melling

Douglas is back with an all new dilemma. When his father gives him a new wooly hat, he reminds Douglas to be careful with it. Then something terrible happens. His hat gets caught on a tree and ends up like a long string of spaghetti. His animal friends try to help, but Douglas is going to need to tell his dad what happened. That sure won’t be easy.

I fell in love with Douglas when I read the touching story titled, Hugless Douglas. Now David Melling is back with another Douglas story that will warm your heart and make you laugh. Don’t Worry, Douglas! is a beautiful book that teaches children the importance of telling the truth. What Melling does so well in this book is capture the feelings children go through when something has gone wrong and they must approach their parents. The book is filled with some well-meaning and some not so selfless friends, which is true of the environment in which children grow up in today.

Melling’s artwork in this one is superb. He is able to capture so many emotions with his illustrations: the glee of having fun, the shock of something unexpected, the despair of knowing you must face the music, and the joy of learning it will be all right.

This is one of my favorite series of books. I can’t wait to see what Douglas is up to next!
