  3. rrostam says:

    I like this because at the end he gets a really cute pet

  4. claque says:

    Dogger is about a toy dog with one ear up and one ear down. Dogger is lost and missed terribly. He turns up at the school fair where his usually annoying sister Bella shows how much she actually cares about her brother. I like this book because it is emotional.

  5. llincoln says:

    A great book. Dave loses his much loved teddy but his sister gives up her giant teddy for it.

  8. Henry Roberts says:

    I kind of liked Dogger. It’s about a boy who loses his favourite toy and then his sister swaps her big teddy for it and gets it back. It’s a bit of a sad story but then the end is happy. I liked it when Dave got Dogger back. My favourite bit was the school fair because there were cakes.

  9. Molly Duffy says:

    This book makes me a bit sad when they loose Dogger but the ending is good when they go to the fete and get it back. My mum loves this book and remembers it from when she was a little girl too.

    A very sad story, I don’t like to lose my favourite toy

  11. Sophie Nagel says:

    I liked it because the sister was sharing her toy and the pictures were beautiful. And because he liked his dog

  12. djaiden says:

    I liked it when his sister swapped her big teddy for Dogger. That was nice. I do nice things for my sister too.

    Great childhood tale .

  15. eroberts says:

    Dogger got lost and I was worried in that part. He was taken to a school sale, and bought by another child. Dave was very sad, but his big sister gave one of her teddy bears (because she had lots), and got Dogger back. I like this story because Dogger was found.

  16. dmolly says:

    I get a bit sad when dogger gets sold, but it is an excellent story!

  17. eburianova says:

    This was my mum’s favourite book when she was young.

  20. iwhitelaw says:

    I like this book because Bella has loads of teddies in her bed, and she is really nice and does a kind thing for her brother.

  21. keley says:

    Very heart warming and easy 🌉🏞🗻

  22. ablackburncave says:

    I like this book because it is kind of sad and kind of happy because he finds his dog in the end but he loses it at the start, which i bet is very sad for him because he lost his favourite dog and its his special dog, so really sad actually and a tiny weeny bit happy

  23. bplowman says:

    Dogger is a little teddy and he gets lost and got sold in a car-boot sale and he gets bought but Dave Doggers owner is annoyed because Dogger got sold and his sister got money from a competition and, to the rescue she bought Dogger back. My favourite character is Dogger because he is very cute and my favourite bit is when he does try to buy Dogger back but he only has 3p.

  24. zolafa says:

    I think this book is good

  25. rsholem says:

    I loved it,becuse Dogger is the cutesd teddy ever

  26. jwilloughby says:

    I like it because he gets his teddy back

  27. fmckenzieoneill says:

    amazing brilliant and all because of the little,little Dogger.

  28. fives says:

    This is a funny book about a small boy who takes his toy dog everywhere but chaos occurs when he loses his toy and he won’t rest until it’ till its found.

  29. hheyhoetedstone says:

    i foud lots of twis and te4rs in this book but i realy like it

  30. glincoln says:

    I like dogger because it is about friendship and a dog that gets lost in a fair then a girl byes him but then his sister get s it back

  31. Mr Milne says:

    My family has somehow ‘missed’ Dogger and it is good finally to have come across it as part of the Rosendale 100 books. I can’t help noticing that for so many people the mention of Dogger evokes very warm memories. It’s easy to imagine how a young person could experience all the raw emotions in Dogger – something for future grandchildren perhaps!

  32. fboyd says:

    I liked that Bella gave her teddy to the little girl. This is a good book.

  34. dsampson says:

    This book is quite sad because a boy loses his teddy called dogger at a fair.Happily he found him at the end

  35. dreynolds says:

    Dave loved Dogger so much that he takes him wherever he goes.But one day Dogger gets lost can Dave sort it out before its to late?

  36. tbraganza says:

    This book is quite sad, especially when the girl buys Dogger from the stall. It was really good as well though. Long may it continue to be enjoyed by little kids like my baby sister.
