I was looking for something cute to read for Valentine’s Day, or at least, have a cute review up for my blog on Valentine’s Day as it is 9-2 today, and I came across this book! About hugs!
I loved that the book started with a hug checklist! This boy has plans~ Everything and everyone is getting a big ol’ hug from the little fella~ I was definitely curious about some of his items, like we see a bear? A snake? A whale? I was wondering how he would get his checklist done.
And so we see him hug everything. From small to big. From alive to not so alive. He is a true hugging machine and I had a laugh at all he encountered on his walks. I am not entirely sure how people felt about his hugs. We see most people just looking bewildered but a few people (and animals) seem moved and happy to have gotten a hug. I loved that he wasn’t afraid to hug the spikiest or the biggest things he encountered, he thought of a brilliant way to give them all that love!
I loved that we got to see maps with how he hugged people. His path is all over the place but all he cares about is hugging!
Pizza is always a great answer! I would also say that. Yum. Now I am hungry for pizza. looks around
The ending just made me smile so so much and boy I loved it! That was just the way to end this book!
The art was really adorable and the style really fitted with the book! It made me go aww a lot.
All in all, this is a book I would highly recommend on this beautiful day of love and happiness! Come get your hug from the hug machine~
