The Runaway Hug by Nick Bland

This was one of my favourite picture books last year, so I was pleased to see that it was shortlisted for the Children's Book Council Award.

Lucy is about to go bed, but needs a bedtime hug. Her mum only has one hug left though. So they agree that Lucy will just borrow it then bring it right back.

So begins a charming tale as Lucy's hug gets passed around the family, almost gets lost, before finally ending up back her mother's arms.

I've enjoyed reading this aloud to a group a children as they delight in the antics of the runaway hug.

It is also a perfect bedtime story where you can snuggle up together safe in the knowledge that your own hug is right where you want it!
