Synopsis

Douglas is a young bear looking for a hug. But each time he thinks he has found that very special feeling, it turns out to be a false alarm. The big rock he hugs is too...oof! HEAVY. The tall tree he hugs is too...ouch! SPLINTERY. And the cozy-looking bush he hugs quivers and trembles and then runs away! Poor Hugless Douglas. Won't anyone give him a hug?

Many of Melling's illustrations have rib-tickling touches, and a hilarious appendix shows the rabbit and a small flock of sheep demonstrating more than a dozen different hugs (the shy and unrequited hugs are particularly snort-inducing).

In addition to the story, there are two extras: a “hug gallery,” in which various images can be e-mailed, and a game of “Noughts and Crosses” (more frequently known in America as Tic-Tac-Toe).
