Snuggle up and win a copy of the adorable Group Hug

We're giving away five copies of this super-cute celebration of cuddles.

Group Hug is such an adorable story that we want to give it a big old squeeze - and now we're giving you the chance to discover it too!

Meet Slug, who needs someone to hug - and then along comes a lonely bug! The pair give each other a cuddle, and decide to spread the joy of hugs to other animals too...

They meet more and more creatures, from a gloomy Mouse to a stinky Skunk, and their group hug soon stretches wide and tall. But will there be enough hug to share when Bear comes along?

Group Hug is a really sweet tale about affection and acceptance, with lovely rhyming text from Jean Reidy and fabulous, quirky illustrations by Joey Chou.

It's sure to make you and your children want to snuggle up, so we're delighted to have five copies up for grabs.

If you fancy winning one, simply let us know which animal you'd most like to hug and leave your details below before the closing date of 11pm on Tuesday, 30 November. Good luck!
