"A pleasure"--Kirkus

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.
