Poor Douglas wakes up one spring morning needing a hug. He steps outside and tries to remember what his hugs are like. They’re big, tall, and comfy. But everything he tries to hug doesn’t feel right or runs away. Maybe he’s just going to stay Hugless Douglas.
This fabulous and funny book written and illustrated by David Melling is going to become a quick favorite. Hugless Douglas is as touching as it is silly. Melling is masterful in his telling of the story of a young bear who is seeking a hug and can’t seem to get one from anyone of anything.
The last two pages of the book contain some zany hugs your kids will probably try on you.
Hugless Douglas is a delightful book. I’ll be on the lookout for more books by David Melling.
