WILD ANIMALS DON’T SCARE Little Sister. And to show how much she likes them, she’s going to hug them all, from Ape to Zebra, whether they like it or not! A newt, an octopus, a porcupine . . . it’s a slimy, slippery, prickly situation. What will Little Sister hug next? And what kind of trouble will those hugs get her into?

With riotously revolting rhymes and hysterically funny art, kids will be laughing their way from A to Z . . . until all the animals are scared away and there’s only one person left to hug!
