Hugless Douglas

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

Douglas, a young brown bear, wakes up one spring needing a big hug. A large round rock is too heavy and a tall tree doesn't feel right, especially the splinters.

A comfy-looking bush gets the Douglas squeeze, but the creatures living there hurry it away. A flock of sheep kick and squirm and wriggle off.

Dougals annoys an owl and makes a rabbit furious, by wiping his miserable nose on its fluffy end. Poor Douglas. The rabbit thoughtfully leads Douglas home to his cave where his Mum is waking up, ready to give him the warmest, cuddliest hug ever.

Entertaining illustrations and a message that the best hugs are from those who love you make this the perfect bedtime book.
