Book Review: Who Wants a Hug?-Jeff Mack

Everyone loves Bear. He's always happy and he gives great big hugs. But Skunk find this annoying, and he has some stinky plans to stop him.

Someone needs a hug.....

This is a cheerful, brightly-colored laugh out loud  read.  I especially love it every time Skunk's plans backfire ( reminds me of  the old Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd cartoons.) Ending is a bit predictable, but kids will laugh their heads off.

Who Wants A Hug? by Jeff Mack
Age Level: 4 and up
**** (4 stars)

  • Big Hugs, Little Hugs by Felicia Bond
