Published by Koala Books/Scholastic
The Cuddliest Hug is the moving new picture book from Meredith Costain and UK based illustrator Cee Biscoe.
Baby Kanga can’t find his Mama, he’s all in a muddle about who will give him his ‘sleepy-time cuddle?’ He bounces around the bush visiting his wildlife friends in search of the perfect cuddle.
Echidna is too prickly! Platypus too slippery! Koala offers her pouch, but it’s not the same as Mama’s.
‘My mouth is cosy, warm and snug’ offers a cunning crocodile. A friendly Dingo intervenes and thwarts the attempts of the hungry reptile. Aunty Jabiru swoops in to save the day and carries Kanga to safety.
No hug is more perfect than that of his Mama’s and happily the pair are reunited to share their special moment once more.
The illustrations are warm and inviting bursting off every page making this eye catching book perfect for new bubs to pre-schoolers.
This is one book you’ll want to enjoy over and over again. Snuggle up with your little Kangas and enjoy The Cuddliest Hug.
