David Melling Learning Resources

David Melling's Hugless Douglas series has charmed and delighted young readers since the publication of Hugless Douglas in 2010. These tales of a young bear in search of the perfect hug can be the gateway to some fantastic creative learning!

These resources, by classroom teacher Linda Murray, include the following activity ideas:

  • Create a timeline of fictional bears;
  • Set up daily 'Quick Draw McGraw' sessions;
  • Making models of Douglas's cave.

These resources were created to support our online Authors Live event with David, but you can use them at any time to engage your pupils with his books. Check out our Authors Live Watch on Demand section to find David's event plus a whole host of other events with best-loved children's authors and illustrators.
