Hug

Written and illustrated by Jez Alborough

Published by Candlewick Press

Publisher's Summary

Bobo needs a hug. But his friends don't seem to understand. "Hug," he implores, time and again. Time and again his puzzled pals — from the smallest chameleon to the tallest giraffe — shrug and cuddle with their jungle mothers. As the lonely chimp's plea escalates, his friends grow concerned. Can the elephants lead Bobo to his heart's desire? Jez Alborough transforms a total of three words — and some of the most tenderly expressive animals ever created — into an endearing tribute to love and belonging.
