Munsch and Martchenko have created their very first original book designed specifically for preschoolers!

When Thea gets mad at mommy, she and her little brother go for a walk around the block.

They meet a snail, a skunk, a porcupine, and a gorilla, and get a hug from each one — but the hugs are slimy, smelly, pokey, and way too hard! It's not until they get back to mommy that Tate and Thea get a really good hug.

This book was inspired by a brother and sister from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan who Robert Munsch met while on a ski vacation.
Thea and her little brother Tate need a hug — but sometimes, only a Mommy Hug will do.

Cute book in which Thea learns to get over her anger with mom by taking her brother for a walk and watching him look for a hug that's as good as mom's. Munsch is a pretty reliable choice for good books for young children.
