Everyone needs a hug sometimes, even the least cuddly creatures. Everyone finds reasons not to hug tortoise or hedgehog but the wise owl explains that there is someone special for everyone and they just have to be found. Children will love the presentation of the story in this very satisfying book with a very happy ending.
Hedgehog was feeling sad. As sad as a hedgehog can feel. So sad only one thing could help... Tortoise was feeling sad. As sad as a tortoise can feel. So sad only one thing could help... In this clever flipbook, both a hedgehog and a tortoise are looking for a hug. They ask all the other animals they come across but for some reason no one will hug them. Until a wise owl explains: Hedgehog is too spiky; Tortoise is too bony. And that's when they find each other!
A beautiful, heartwarming picture book with all the universal appeal of Guess How Much I Love You.
