A cuddle makes everything better than alright.

This is a book to make everyone smile a bit more, but junior members of your own family in particular. It’s published by Tickled Moon, out and out leaders in personalised books, which means you can put your two favourite young people at the heart of the story. And what a warm and comforting story it is. After a nightmare, a cuddle is guaranteed to make things better. As more and more people join in (a chance to add other family members and friends directly into the story), the cuddle grows, and by the final pages it is stretching round the whole world, linking everyone up in an outpouring of love so huge, it can be seen from space! The sentiment is lovely, the rhyming text lots of fun and the illustrations are packed with detail (look out for that dreamy dragonfly hiding on every page). A great book to share, while the magic of personalisation will make it very special indeed.

The Longest Cuddle in the World Synopsis

After a horrible dream, NAME 1(Child) feels that only a cuddle from NAME 2(Adult) will make things better. However, the cuddle isn’t quite enough, even when ALL the family join in. As it bursts out of their door, how far will this cuddle eventually stretch and will it make a difference? And could it become the LONGEST cuddle in the world??!

“[Name 1] and [Name 2] and the Longest Cuddle in the World” is a beautiful, rhyming personalised book for 2 for ages 0-99. 

After a tough year of Covid separations, it's a touching story about how a cuddle can make all the difference to our fears and unite us all over the world.

It is Tickled Moon’s 5th personalised book to date and the story has been uniquely written to be personalised throughout for a Child and Adult (or older Sibling). It also includes the names of 5 (or more) Family Members, the Child’s Teacher/Hero and their Hometown. And you can add a personal Dedication too.

“The Longest Cuddle” is available in softcover and hardcover on Tickled Moon’s website. There you can preview the whole book with your personalisations and listen to the story read by the author, Alison Reddihough.
