Description


In I Need a Hug, a tiny porcupine just wants a cuddle. All of the other animals turn him away because of his prickly spikes. But finally the porcupine meets an animal who's happy to hug -- a snake!

Rich with author-illustrator Aaron Blabey's signature rhyming text and unforgettably splendid illustrations, I Need a Hug is a sweet story about friendship and learning not to judge a book by its cover.

Perfect for Valentine's Day or any day that requires a hug!

Praise For…


Praise for Pig the Winner:

"The goggle-eyed cartoon illustrations are fun, funny, and appealingly grotesque in their exaggerated goofiness, and they are a good match for the rhyming text." -- Kirkus Reviews


Praise for Pig the Pug:

"Blabey's jaunty rhymes will make for some fun read-alouds." -- Publishers Weekly
