The Runaway Hug

'Mummy,' said Lucy, 'can I have a hug before I go to bed? I promise I'll give it back.' 

Lucy shares the hug with everyone in her family. Along the way it becomes softer, sleepier, bigger, even peanut-buttery. But when the hug runs away Lucy discovers that it's not so easy to get back.

Picture book collaborators, Nick Bland and Freya Blackwood have created a gentle, charming story in The Runaway Hug.

Read delightfully by Freya Blackwood, this story will be enjoyed by the whole family.
