Synopsis

The Hug by David Grossman Literary Agency Ltd

In The Hug, internationally renowned author David Grossman tells the moving story of the moment when Ben realises that no two living creatures are alike not his mother and father, their beautiful dog Miracle or the ants who march side by side at his feet and appear identical and the loneliness he feels knowing that there is no one else quite like him in the whole world. But just as he is feeling the most alone he has ever felt, he is soothed by his mothers loving hug. Timeless, touching and beautifully produced, The Hug is a charming and important work for parents and children encountering the feeling of being different, together.
