Duksta returns to the two-in-one format of Ill Love You More (2007), using a large cast of animals to celebrate the comfort inherent in a parent-child hug. Reading the book from one end reveals a childs perspective (Ill hug you to say thank-you/ for getting my breakfast ready./ Ill hug you and snuggle with you/ and my favorite teddy), and flipping it over presents an adults take as a hug-filled day progresses from morning to night. Two purple ring-tailed lemurs kick things off both times, and the lemurs again appear in the middle, where the narratives converge. Iwais (Lets Go to the Hardware Store) cheery, multi-textured illustrations highlight the sheer versatility of hugs one can give: a small hippo offers a one-handed, behind-the-back number as it eats cereal at the breakfast table, a ladybug uses all six limbs to cling to its parent, and two snakes entwine in a cozy, circular embrace. The rhythms of Dukstas verse can be somewhat clunky, but her reassuring message comes through loud and clear. Ages 48. Authors agent: Cathy Hemming. Illustrators agent: Chris Tugeau, Christina A. Tugeau Artist Agency. (Jan.)
