Love Bug? Hugs and Kisses for the Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle

The Ladybug is grouchy. And when Ladybug is out of sorts, nobody is smiling!

Maybe a smile can turn a frown upside down, but it's not working with this very Grouchy Ladybug.

A little embrace can make a crocodile smile. A little smooch will make a seal flap his flippers.

A little hug can help a mama kangaroo and her joey jump with joy, a giraffe stretch tall, or get a donkey kicking up his hind hooves!

And just little kiss will inspire a peacock to ...


So can some hugs and kisses coax a smile out of that grouchy ladybug?

Favorite author-illustrator Eric Carle has crafted a nifty new picture book for the Valentine season, his just-published Hugs and Kisses for the Grouchy Ladybug (Harper Collins, 2018), in which he proves that a little love goes a long way. Carle's signature tissue-collaged artwork is iconic and instantly recognizable, especially for youngsters who already know his classics, The Grouchy Ladybug and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Pair this one with Carle's other loving and lovely Love from The Very Hungry Caterpillar (The World of Eric Carle) (see review here).
