Hooray! We're so excited, because Hedgehog and Tortoise are back for more snuggles in the beautiful new book The Longer the Wait, The Bigger the Hug.

The latest book from Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar - which comes after The Hug and While We Can't Hug - sees the pair reunited after a long winter.

Tortoise has been hibernating, leaving Hedgehog waiting for him to wake up. Hedgehog has lots of other friends, of course, but they aren't as much fun at the beach, or at hide and seek, or at holding hands, or at hugs.

But then Tortoise begins to stir, and it turns out he's been dreaming of Hedgehog! The hug that follows might just be their best yet.

The Longer the Wait, The Bigger the Hug is another absolutely adorable story that's sure to get you and your little ones snuggling up.

We have five copies up for grabs, so if you fancy getting your hands on one simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Tuesday, 17 August. Good luck!
