Thea and her little brother Tate need a hug - but sometimes, only a Mommy Hug will do.

When Thea gets mad at mommy, she and her little brother go for a walk around the block.

They meet a snail, a skunk, a porcupine, and a gorilla, and get a hug from each one - but the hugs are slimy, smelly, pokey, and way too hard! It's not until they get back to mommy that Tate and Thea get a really good hug.

Following the success of the revised board book editions of Alligator Baby, We Share Everything!, and Up, Up, Down, Munsch and Martchenko have created their very first original book designed specifically for preschoolers!

This book was inspired by a brother and sister from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan who Robert Munsch met while on a ski vacation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Master Storyteller My kids adore this book and the big mommy hug they get at the end. I change the characters names to fit my children and they love it even more. Munsch makes it so easy to change your tone when reading stories that kids love it even more.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Hugs:"Brimming with the silliness, imagination and exaggerated illustrations we've come to expect from this kid-lit dynamic duo, this board book original is a must for babies and toddlers." -Canadian Family "Hugs is straightforward and sincere, and expressive illustrations by Martchenko support Munsch's text and add a touch of silliness... This original board book is much more satisfying than the revised board book versions that have previously produced, however. Format considerations aside, readers of all ages will enjoy reading this story and will likely agree that often what one really needs is a Mommy hug." -CM: Canadian Review of MaterialsPraise for Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko:"Laurel and Hardy, Holmes and Watson, peanut butter and jam - some things just go better together. Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko figured that out a number of years ago, and have been teaming up to produce silly, insanely popular books ever since." -Quill & Quire
