WEEKLY (starred review)
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 transforms a total of three words -
and some of the most tenderly expressive animals ever created -
into an endearing tribute to love and belonging.
