This adorable tale is now available in picture book format!

On the day Thea is mad at Mommy, she and her little brother Tate 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, poky and way too hard! It's not until they get back to Mommy that both Tate and Thea get the best hug of all — a Mommy hug!

This gently affirming story from Robert Munsch is already a bestseller in board book format.
