The Hug | Eoin McLaughlin

Hedgehog was feeling sad.
As sad as a hedgehog can feel.
So sad only one thing could help…

Tortoise was feeling sad. 
As sad as a tortoise can feel. 
So sad only one thing could help…

In this clever flipbook, both a hedgehog and a tortoise are looking for a hug. They ask all the other animals they come across but for some reason no one will hug them. Until a wise owl explains: Hedgehog is too spiky; Tortoise is too bony….

And that’s when they find each other!
