Cactus Wants a Hug

Neil Flory

Simon Yeo

Everyone wants a hug, and so does prickly-pokey Cactus.

He leaves the desert and looks for it up and down, far and wide.

Problem is, he's not very hug-friendly.


Cactus is sad and about to give up when someone surprises him.

A sweet, funny and gorgeously illustrated tale about going all out to find a friend.
