There was once a kitten so filled with love he wanted to give the whole world a hug!

Jules the kitten (also known in the MUTTS cartoons as "Shtinky Puddin'") knows that hugs can make the world a better place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sweetest book My children love this book and have for many years (they are 4 & 7 now), it teaches about caring for the special creatures that share this very big planet with us. I like to give it as a gift for young children or even for a different baby shower present. Best of all hugs are called for at the end of the reading - who can resist that!
