Hug Time by Patrick McDonnell

Join Jules, the kitten, on his discovery of how perfect and simple love can be as he travels the globe to share a hug with everyone he meets. From port to port, from sea to sea, Jules hugs a hippo, a whale, a wombat, a panda, a giraffe and an elephant. But when he arrives in the North Pole, there doesn't seem to be anyone around to hug ...Or is there? A warm and engaging tale of love for fans of Guess How Much I Love You from internationally acclaimed MUTTS cartoonist, Patrick McDonnell, described by Peanuts creator Charles Schulz as One of the best comic strips of all time.
