The Hug (Mini Edition)

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 flipbook, 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 bony.

And that's when they find each other!

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