A Hug for Humphrey

This book instantly makes you say 'aw.' It is ADORABLE.
A Hug for Humphrey is written by Steve Smallman and illustrated by Tim Warnes.
Humphrey does not know what sort of toy he is and what he can do. The other toys in the book help him to figure out what sort of toy he is. Humphrey is the sort of toy who can hug, and that is exactly what he does!

I read this book recently to a Year 2 class and they just LOVED it. They enjoyed the anticipation of finding out what he could do. This book also has an extra special touch, literally. Humphrey's tummy is made of felt, an added bonus for children who can follow Humphrey through the book.

As you can see from the illustration, Humphrey is floppy and cuddly looking. I want to give him a hug!
