about

"Alborough's simplicity results in another gem."
—School Library Journal


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.

From Our Editors

Hand picked by our Panel of Experts the IndigoKids Recommends program offers book suggestions designed to help you find the perfect book easily and confidently. A little word and a simple gesture make a big difference! Bobo, a baby chimp, sees all kinds of animal pairs of kids and parents snuggling each other. "Hug," he says happily, and goes off in search of his mom and a cuddle of his own. But he doesn't find her right away and with every repetition of the word, Bobo's sad face speaks volumes to small children. Eventually, though, Bobo's mommy does find him and hugs abound for a happy ending. A delightful, colourful and expressive board book for preschoolers. Baby to age 3.
