Product description

Think of cute little animals you’d love to cuddle. Now think of a porcupine. Ouch! Dare you hug this oh-so-lonely critter? Lucky bears get lots of bear hugs. But this cute little porcupine never gets hugged. Nobody wants to touch her because she’s so spiky! “I need a hug”, she says. But the other animals shoo her away. Will she ever get a cosy cuddle? Find out in this funny story – prickly on the outside, but with the loveliest, sweetest, softest centre!

  • A heartwarming rhyme by the creator of Pig the Pug
  • Very simple tale brought alive by adorable pictures
  • Great story for cuddling up and sharing aloud together
  • Explores ideas of friendship and embracing difference
