Hug Me

Written by: Simoana Ciraolo

First line: Felipe was descended from an old and famous family who liked to look good and always behaved properly.

Why you should read this book: Slightly silly but very sweet and delightfully illustrated story of a cactus who has a lot of love to give. His attempts to receive love from his family fail and lead him to an ill-advised relationship with a helium balloon, which, obviously, ends badly, before he embarks upon a safer intimacy with a rock. I can't help but think this story is a metaphor for growing up as a WASP, and that all of the events have correlation in the real world.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't like hugs.
