Laugh and play the Hugglewug way! A fun exploration of family life — and a great introduction to words and counting for the very young.
Meet the Hugglewugs, a brand-new family — in fact, a brand-new species. Follow them as they go about their everyday lives, singing, eating, going to school, running, sliding, skipping, and, of course, hugging. Niamh Sharkey's bold and bright illustrations bring these energetic characters to life, while her simple story welcomes children to join in their rhymes and games.
Niamh Sharkey is the illustrator of many award-winning children's books. When looking for inspiration for a new picture book, she turned to her old notebooks and sketches. "I came across a 1994 painting, RAVENOUS MONSTERS, featuring hungry, hungry animals. After much playing around with the idea, THE RAVENOUS BEAST was born." Niamh Sharkey lives in Dublin, Ireland.
