Dougal and Bumble and all their friends live in a little house by the beach. They love to play in the sand and watch the big planes flying overhead. Life is pretty good. And when they're invited to the Teddy Bears' Picnic, it gets even better. They even meet a new friend Trevor the Pig. But then the bus leaves without them and they're stranded. It's a big wild world out there, and they're a long way from home. Can three little toys make it back all on their own? It won't be easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is.....
This mostly true and funny little sequel is a furry tale about friendship, perseverance and karaoke. Dougal the Garbage Dump Bear is a 'story with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.' Herald Sun
Matt Dray was inspired to write about Dougal when they met while Matt was working at a garbage dump on the Gold Coast; Dougal the Garbage Dump Bear is that story. Dougal and friends have had much fun and excitement since then and Matt also wrote a book about one particular adventure; Dougal and Bumble and the Long Walk Home. Matt Dray currently lives in Queensland. And all the toys do too.
