There was once a kitten so filled with love he wanted to give the whole world a hug! Jules the kitten (also kwn in the MUTTS cartoons as 'Shtinky Puddin' ) kws that hugs can make the world a better place. So he makes a 'Hug To-Do List' - with the endangered species at the top - and travels the globe to show all of the animals that someone cares. From Africa to the North Pole to his own back yard, Jules proves a hug is the simplest - but kindest - gift we can give. With its gently environmental theme, this joyous story about sharing love is an ideal gift year-round.
