Hugless Douglas and the Great Cake Bake by David Melling (Hodder Children's Books)

Hugless Douglas is back for book 7 in David Melling's enduring bear-based book series. This time, Hugless Douglas is wondering why the world has become somewhat sticky - and also why his prized jar of honey seems to have gone missing!

It doesn't take long to track down the culprits. Those naughty sheep are getting their bake on, and have pinched Douglas's honey to make honey drizzle cakes!

Douglas is such a lovely chap that he forgives the sheep, as long as he gets to join in with the great baa-baa-bake off (and of course sample those delicious sounding cakes at the end!)

But when the greedy sheep snaffle the lot, what on earth can Douglas eat instead, now all the honey is gone?

"Hugless Douglas and the Great Cake Bake" will make your tummy rumble as this entertaining story unfolds, and we learn that amazingly there are actually other things to eat in this big ol' world of ours other than cake (I know, I found it almost impossible to believe too!)

Nice one David! "Hugless Douglas and the Great Cake Bake" was released on 7th April 2016 from Hodder Children's Books.
