review 1: I was surprised by this book. Looking at the pink cover, I was expecting this book to be over-the-top sweet. Yes, it is sweet, but it is also playfully humorous. The young narrator has dubbed himself the Hug Machine because he is the master of hugs who can hug anything anywhere and his hugs are truly transformational. As much as I enjoy the deadpan humor of the text, it is the illustrations that truly soar. My current favorite is the Hug Machine hugging the whale, but the one with the porcupine is priceless.
review 2: I don’t know the hug machine’s name, but guess “hug machine” is enough, because the whole day through, he manages to hug nearly everyone and everything. You can look online and see many benefits of receiving hugs, and this young boy seems
... moreto know that, and finally, finally receives a hug himself at the very end of the day. It’s a celebration of hugs, and portrayed beautifully throughout the book, and in the endpapers. I smiled all the way through! less
