Hot hugs in the garden: Hugless Douglas at Mostly Books

We had a very special guest this weekend - Hugless Douglas...we'll let the pictures tell the whole story...

Mark welcomes Douglas to Mostly Books. It was sweltering in the back garden, and Douglas has a lot of fur...
Initially some of his young fans were a bit wary...

 ...but they soon queued up to meet him, with the help of Douglas' creator David Melling...

...who met fans and signed books. Douglas was up for photos...


...and of course hugs for young and old fans!


Finally, Douglas posed with a smaller version of himself. The smaller bear is up for grabs as part of Abingdon's 'Where's Douglas' hunt around town, which continues until the end of this week for anyone who was away for half-term!

We also have signed copies of Hugless Douglas - including the new edition with audio - read by the marvellous Alan Davies!

Thanks to everyone who came along to meet him (we even have a family turn up from Kent!). Douglas felt very welcome in Abingdon, and after a honey snack (and about 2 litres of water) off he went into the sunset...

We love you Hugless Douglas!
