Top ten family-themed picture books

Jessica Ahlberg, daughter of the acclaimed author/illustrator team, Janet and Allan Ahlberg, studied fine art at Winchester College and has gone on to illustrate several books for children, including Goldilocks and Half A Pig.

She shared her top ten family-themed picture books with the Guardian. One title on the list:
Dogger by Shirley Hughes

Dogger is a story about Dave's lost toy - a heart-wrenching idea if you love your toy as much as I loved my teddy and Dave loves Dogger. But it's not just about the lost toy - it's also about Dave's brilliant big sister Bella, and the wonderful thing she does for Dave. Bella is my hero.
