Like a wordless book, the story unfolds through a series of expressive pictures. . . . Alborough makes clear . . . the elation the animals gain from their shared affection. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Bobo needs a hug. But his friends don't seem to understand. Hug, he implores, time and again. Time and again his puzzled pals -- from the smallest chameleon to the tallest giraffe -- shrug and cuddle with their jungle mothers. As the lonely chimp's plea escalates, his friends grow concerned. Can the elephants lead Bobo to his heart's desire? Jez Alborough transforms a total of three words -- and some of the most tenderly expressive animals ever created -- into an endearing tribute to love and belonging.
