Cover reveal: I Need a Hug by Aaron Blabey

We are so thrilled to reveal the cover of the latest picture book from Aaron Blabey, the bestselling author of books like The Bad Guys series, Pig the Pug, and Thelma the Unicorn!

Today, Aaron is going to introduce us to a new character: a tiny porcupine who just wants a cuddle in I Need a Hug, which will come out on January 29, 2019.

About the book: Everyone needs a hug in this new, irresistibly funny picture book from Aaron Blabey, the New York Times bestselling creator of The Bad Guys and Pig the Pug! 

In I Need a Hug, a tiny porcupine just wants a cuddle. All of the other animals turn him away because of his prickly spikes. But finally the porcupine meets an animal who's happy to hug — a snake!

Rich with author-illustrator Aaron Blabey's signature rhyming text and unforgettably splendid illustrations, I Need a Hug is a sweet story about friendship and learning not to judge a book by its cover.

Now, here's a special video from Aaron himself introducing I Need a Hug:
