Thrilled to announce that Charlene Chua’s author-illustrator debut Hug is coming from Kids Can Press in 2020!

This is such a fantastic story, and in addition to being read on its face value, I also love that it could open up a discussion about self-care and consent for the youngest of readers. I also love what Charlene is doing with the art, as it’s in a different style from some of her other (gorgeous) work that I think works great with the feel of this story!

I’m so excited to see this on the shelves, but if you can’t wait to own some of Charlene’s art, you can check out some of her current work below!
