I have three kids: The pictures in this book are extremely important because there aren’t very many words in the book. He travels and adventures around the jungle in search of hugs from all types of different animals, however, he notices that each animal he meets already has someone to hug.

Highly recommend it for any age – a new classic!

By having the chimp ask a multitude of animals for a hug, Alborough alborlugh a parallel to the human inhibition to seek affection.
