Description
How do you give your granny a hug when she lives far away? Send it through the mail, of course! Owen's hug travels across the country in a series of hilarious, sometimes awkward, always heartfelt embraces between animals of different shapes and sizes. Valeri Gorbachev's adorable artwork pairs beautifully with Sandra Horning's charming text, and makes for a fun, funny, and educational read-aloud. An unexpected twist at the end will delight readers and have kids asking for this book again and again.
