A beautiful, heartwarming picture book with all the universal appeal of Guess How Much I Love You.

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.
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!
'Feels like being enveloped in your very own hug.' Kirkus
'A smashing story time tale.' Books for Keeps
'It's utterly lovely. It makes her face light up every time she hears it.' The Guardian Best Books of 2019
