See below for English description. Dans la forèt enneigée, Renard recourt à la ruse pour tenter de convaincre Gros Ours de déménager. Mais où se trouve le parfait nid douillet? Le tunnel pour les trains est beaucoup plus spacieux, mais vraiment trop bruyant... L'arbre creux plaît bien à Gros Ours, mais les chauves-souris lui posent un problème... La grotte au bord de l'océan offre une belle vue, mais elle est un peu trop humide... Le renard trompeur réussira-t-il à se débarrasser de Gros Ours? A very sneaky Fox and a very sleepy Bear set off to explore other places for Bear to call home. The train tunnel is too loud, even if the double doors are nice. The hollow tree's high ceilings are great, but the bats are not. The oceanfront option has great views -- great, but damp. Could it be that sleepy Bear's own cozy cave is the perfect one after all?

What's a king to do? King Pig is grand ruler of the sheep. He can make them do whatever he wants (clean his castle), whenever he wants (the middle of the night). But for some reason, he can't seem to make them like him. Until he has a brilliant idea! King Pig marches all the sheep into his castle and sets them to work dyeing, cutting and knitting their wool into a pile of fancy new clothes. He prances out in his spectacular, intricate, rainbow-bright fashions expecting applause and adulation, but . . . NOTHING! The sheep are so preoccupied with themselves (could it be that they're naked and cold without their wool?) that they don't even notice him! What's a king to do? When King Pig finally thinks of a way to make amends, it may not be perfect - but it's a pretty good start. Nick Bland's playful, wonderfully humorous illustrations will leave kids and parents grinning, even as they share an important lesson about treating others the way they would like to be treated.

A heartwarming, cozy story that celebrates family affection and the importance of giving back a hug. When Lucy's mother gives Lucy the last hug she has, Lucy promises to give it back, but first she must share it with everyone in the house - Dad, the twins, the baby and even her dog, Annie. Along the way, the hug changes - it becomes stronger, bigger, a bit slobbery, peanut-buttery, and at one point it even runs away on her. But it always comes back to her and it's always nice. With charming affirmations of love on every page, parents and their children will love Freya Blackwood's simply adorable illustrations and the familiar scenes of a slightly chaotic household just before bedtime.
