Get ready for another zany Hugless Douglas book by author/illustrator David Melling. Douglas is all excited to be sleeping over at rabbit’s house. He packs plenty, because there is so much room at rabbit’s. On the way, he invites Little Sheep along, too. When Douglas arrives with a ton of guests for rabbit’s sleepover, there’s not enough space for everyone. How will they ever get to sleep?
This book is a riot. I’ve loved all three Hugless Douglas books, but this is my favorite. Silly antics and crazy pictures fill this book with tons of fun. Melling has such a wacky style that he creates wonderful characters that offer loads of comedic entertainment. I also love the hidden details you catch here and there along the way. The last two pages of this book have illustrations that match answers to the question, “What would you pack for a sleepover?” The sheep, rabbit, and some screwy birds help illustrate the answers.
Hugless Douglas and the Big Sleepover is a great book for bed time or anytime. I can’t wait to see what future adventures lay in store for Douglas and his friends.
