"Fans of Weninger's series about the rabbit Davy will recognize illustrator Tharlet's expressive style, even though her character this time is a puppy, Hugs. With fur that seems real enough to touch, a sunny disposition, and sweet manners. Hugs is a real charmer. On a quest to find out what kisses are like, he asks every animal he meets for one. He discovers that they can be sticky, muddy, or on the ticklish side. A duck's kiss is a bit hard and wet, but Hugs finds it refreshing; a horse's kiss is damp yet warm; a pig's kiss is bristly but tender. Of course the best kiss of all comes as no surprise: the loving embrace of a mother and son."Loupy, Christophe is the author of 'Abrazos y Besos (Hugs and Kisses)', published 2007 under ISBN 9780735821576 and ISBN 0735821577.
