'Mummy,' said Lucy, 'can I have a hug before I go to bed?

I promise I'll give it back.'

Lucy shares the hug with everyone in her family. Along the way it becomes softer, sleepier, bigger, even peanut-buttery. But when the hug runs away, Lucy discovers that it's not so easy to get back.

Nationally and internationally-bestselling picture book creators Nick Bland and Freya Blackwood have come together for the first time with this gentle, charming story that is sure to become a classic

with families.

      Comments about The Runaway Hug:

      I ended up buying this book after my 3 year old had borrowed it from the library each week for 2 months!! She loves Nick bland but this particular story she adores - we read it at least once a day, along with her other Nick bland favourite, twinkle of course!
