A great book to read aloud, children will love joining in with 'Don't hug the pug!' and be highly amused by the rather smelly outcome! -- Book Activist
A sweet story with an unexpected twist at the end. -- Parent's In Touch
A simple story told in comic-book form about a baby that does a lot of hugging.... with one caveat!
Baby likes to cuddle. Grown-Up lets him cuddle the rug, the jug, the bug and the slug. But DON'T HUG THE PUG! Why not? What's wrong with the pug....? A hilarious and deceptively simple story that will have little ones shrieking with laughter.
The combination of speech bubbles, rhymes, very short sentences and a stinky twist makes this a perfect book for both the pre-school audience and early readers.
