Product Details


Like a wordless book, the story unfolds through a series of expressive pictures rather than language. Alborough makes clear the chimp’s distress as he tries to communicate with only the repeated word ‘HUG,’ and the elation the animals gain from their shared affection.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

From the warm golden cover to the animal grins at the end, Alborough’s simplicity results in another gem.
—School Library Journal
