Publisher Comments:

A tiny chimp invokes the universal language, uniting his friends in a group hug to end all group hugs. Just try to resist Jez Alborough's latest charmer

Bobo needs a hug. But his friends don't seem to understand. Hug, he implores, time and again. Time and again his puzzled pals--from the smallest chameleon to the tallest giraffe--shrug and cuddle with their jungle mothers. As the lonely chimp's plea escalates, his friends grow concerned. Can the elephants lead Bobo to his heart's desire?

Jez Alborough, the acclaimed author-illustrator of WHERE'S MY TEDDY?, IT'S THE BEAR , and MY FRIEND BEAR transforms a total of three words--and some of the most tenderly expressive animals ever created--into an endearing tribute to love and belonging.

Synopsis:

Bobo tries to get a hug, but his friends just don't understand, in this tender book on love and belonging, written and lavishly illustrated by the acclaimed author of "Where's My Teddy?" and "It's the Bear".

Synopsis:

Need a hug? Bobo the chimp is in search of one in this best-selling picture-book charmer of very few words — and very big heart. Now Hug is more irresistible than ever, with a cuddly companion Bobo that will have readers of all ages opening their arms!
