Awww… Hugless Douglas is so sweet! And so, well, confused. But cute.
Douglas, who is a very young and very brown and pretty big bear, wakes up one morning, needing a hug. Not being all that clued up on who would be likeliest to give him his hug, Douglas wanders off in search of one.
He likes them big. And he likes them tall. But rocks and trees aren’t the huggiest of creatures. And sheep might be soft, but unwilling. And so it goes.
Douglas does try hard, but you can’t force the local wildlife to hug you if they are not huggers.
Luckily, Rabbit has the solution. (I believe it was Rabbit who was the sensible one in the other Hugless Douglas book as well.)
Mothers are often a good bet if you are after a hug. Not the only ones, but fairly dependable for a good squeeze. Come here!
