The Lovereading4Kids comment

Can Little Hog avoid all the hugs that everyone wants to give him? And does he really want to?? As the smallest and most huggable creature in the forest, Little Hog gets Big Hugs, Slow Hugs, Hopping-Quick Hugs and sometimes, Prickly hugs. And that is too many hugs! To avoid more, Little Hogs puts up a sign - “Hogs Hate Hugs” – and runs off into the forest. But when something very scary comes after him, Little Hog realises that Hogs do like hugs after all!

Synopsis

Hogs Hate Hugs! by Tiziana Bendall-Brunello

Little Hog is the cutest, cuddliest hog in the whole forest, and EVERYONE wants to hug him! But Little Hog doesn't like hugs - he's far too old for that. He makes a poster telling everyone: Hogs Hate Hugs! and storms off - so his friends have to come up with an ingenious way of making him realise that You can never be too old for a good hug! With adorable and lively illustrations packed with character, this picture book is fantastic for parents and children to share together, emphasising the importance of love and affection with those who are close to you.

About the Author

Trained in fine art and ceramics at Camberwell College, Tiziana's eclectic glass and ceramic work has been exhibited in the finest galleries and museums in the UK, USA and Europe. Her love for animals means that she loves the little characters created by her illustrator husband, and she has been lured away from her fine art work and inspired to start writing her own children's stories.

Tiziana and John Bendall-Brunello are the writer-illustrator team behind QED's I Wish I Could... series.
