Daddy Hug

When I first saw Tim Warnes’ Daddy Hug, I expected another run-of-the-mill, cute, animal picture book showing various animal daddies doing the things that are most appropriate to their species.  Daddy Hug begins that way, but redeems itself by being humorous instead of just sentimental and sweet–the high points being the look on the Daddy Orgutan’s face and the spread with the belching Moose.   This book could have easily been mediocre, but Jane Chapman’s deft illustrations make it exceptional.
