NOBODY HUGS A CACTUS shows us that sometimes, even the prickliest people—or the crankiest cacti—need a little love. From celebrated artist and lead character designer of Brave, Ratatouille, and Despicable Me, Carter Goodrich, Hank the cactus is a delightful addition to the kid lit world.
NOBODY HUGS A CACTUS
Hank is the prickliest cactus in the entire world. He sits in a pot in a window that faces the empty desert, which is just how he likes it. So, when all manner of creatures—from tumbleweed to lizard to owl—come to disturb his peace, Hank is annoyed. He doesn’t like noise, he doesn’t like rowdiness, and definitely does not like hugs. But the thing is, no one is offering one. Who would want to hug a plant so mean? Hank is beginning to discover that being alone can be, well, lonely.
So he comes up with a plan to get the one thing he thought he would never need: a hug from a friend.
