Book Review: Hugless Douglas by David Melling

We recently received a copy of the picture book Hugless Douglas by David Melling.  I love David Melling and was quite pleased that he has not disappointed with his latest book. 
Douglas is a bear that wakes up in the spring and declares that he needs a hug.  After trying to hug a rock, tree and a herd of sheep, he finds the best hug at the end of the book.
The illustrations are spectacular.  They are nice and big so this would be perfect for a storytelling session.  The story is one that we have heard before through other stories on the same theme of hugs but Melling’s twist with the different animals and objects makes it a fun read.

Rating: 5 out of 5
