The Hug
with Polly Dunbar

Hedgehog was feeling sad.
As sad as a hedgehog can feel.
So sad only one thing could help...
Tortoise was feeling sad.
As sad as a tortoise can feel.
So sad only one thing could help...

In this clever book with two covers, both a hedgehog and a tortoise are looking for a hug. They ask all the other animals they come across but for some reason no one will hug them. Until a wise owl explains: Hedgehog is too spiky; Tortoise is too hard.

And that's when they meet each other in the centre of the book.

A beautiful, heartwarming picture book with all the universal appeal of Guess How Much I Love You.
