LoveReading View on Slug Needs a Hug

Shortlisted for the Laugh-Out-Loud Book Awards 2016 -Picture Book Category - April 2015 Book of the Month - Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month  Best-selling Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross have created many fabulous picture books together. Here, the weedy and whiny little slug is just longing for a hug! How can he make his mum give him one? All the animals he asks give him tips. A furrier and fluffier look, trotters and a tail, horns and a moustache, a pair of wings, and any number of noses. Will all of those tempt the slimy slug’s mum to give him a hug? Tony Ross’s hilarious illustrations of the misguided slug match Jeanne Willis’s ebullient rhyming text perfectly. ~ Julia Eccleshare
