Meet Doug, an ordinary kid who doesn’t like hugs, in this fun and exuberant story which aims to spark discussions about bodily autonomy and consent–from author Carrie Finison and the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of The World Needs More Purple People, Daniel Wiseman.
"A cheerful approach to basic consent.... Fun to read aloud or explore independently."
Publishers Weekly Starred Review
"A gently humorous picture book that kindly, effectively highlights the importance of asking others before initiating physical contact."
