3+: One Kiss, One Hug - Ben Chapman

Release Date: 02/02/12


Ben is a baby bear who just can't get to sleep. He's tried both sides of the pillow, he's kicked his covers off and pulled them back on again; he's even tried counting salmon, but that just made him hungry. But maybe he could get to sleep if he called Mum and Dad for just one more kiss and one more hug...? A lovely, warm hug of a story, this deliciously funny and resonant book showcases a stunning new illustration style from an established author/illustrator.


Recently I read a book that was narrated by Samuel L Jackson and whilst the title contained a profanity within it, this one was one that I had just as much fun with as the lead character couldn’t sleep and needed “Just one more Kiss and Hug” to help him get off to the land of nod.

It had great illustrations with bright colours and characters that the human in us all can associate with as the tale unfurls. Add to this a touch of love, a wonderful sense of togetherness and of course family and overall this story was one that promotes a lot of positive messages for all.
