Hugs of every kind--hugs for Mommy, hugs for Dad, puppy hugs, and even three kinds of bear hugs--are briefly defined and humorously pictured. "As warm as a snuggle (a longish hug), Ross's roundup could start an epidemic of embrazos, good for hugger and huggee."--Publishers Weekly.

Can you imagine what it would be like to hug a bear? An octopus? And how does that differ from a brother hug? Or a Great-Aunt Mary hug? Dave Ross and illustrator Laura Rader's A Book of Hugs explores the full spectrum of hugs with bright, cartoonish illustrations and winsome one- or two-line descriptions. "Fish hugs are very cold and seldom returned," for instance. As for tree hugs, "Some trees are easier to hug than others. Note: If you hug a pine tree too long, you may get stuck on it." In the back you'll find "Facts and Hints About Hugging," including "Never hug tomorrow when you could hug today." This is perhaps the quintessential touchy-feely book, but it is awfully cute... and it makes a sweet valentine for kids of all ages.About the Author:
