The Hug

The Hug is the story of a hug with an identity complex.

Reviews

"What a wonderful story to share with toddlers!"
Edwards Magazine Bookclub, 2010


"The Hug is a charming story about a hug that wants to be something else, such as a red lollipop, a bicycle tire, a doughnut, or a ring buoy. It discovers that the real fun is in giving another hug a hug."
--CM (A Reviewing Journal of Canadian Materials for Young People)
