The New York Times bestselling book that celebrates love and hugs–from beloved MUTTS cartoonist and Caldecott honor-winning artist Patrick McDonnell!
There was once a kitten so filled with love he wanted to give the whole world a hug! Jules the kitten (also known in the MUTTS cartoons as “Shtinky Puddin'”) knows that hugs can make the world a better place. So he makes a “Hug To-Do List”–with the endangered species of the world at the top–and travels the globe to show all of the animals that someone cares. From Africa to the North Pole to his own back yard, Jules proves a hug is the simplest–but kindest–gift we can give. With its gently environmental theme, this joyous rhyming story about sharing love is an ideal gift year-round.
