Product description

Can you hug a horse? Of course! But what about a prickly porcupine? Sure, it’s easy to picture yourself hugging a bunny or even a billy goat, but where would you begin trying to hug a porcupine? After seeing all his friends hug their favourite animals, one brave boy works up the courage to hug his favourite… a porcupine! Unfortunately, the porcupine isn’t so sure he wants to be hugged. A pointed tale of one boy’s brave mission to prove that’s everyone is huggable: even the prickliest of friends!
