The hug

The hug

McLaughlin, Eoin, author; Dunbar, Polly, artist

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
