Book Overview

Celebrated artist and lead character designer of Brave, Ratatouille, and Despicable Me, Carter Goodrich, shows that sometimes, even the prickliest people--or the crankiest cacti--need a little love.

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.

   Perfect condition, a charming read
I had already wrapped this book for a Christmas present to a friend, and I forgot to take a picture of it. But it arrived exactly as it was depicted ''. My friend and I saw this book for the first time when we were at the desert botanical gardens gift shop in Arizona, and we thought it was one of the most touching, funny children's books we had ever read in a while.
   One of the nicest, creatively written, sweet,fantastic illustrations books ,I have ever purchased.
I like books that make you turn ohhh when you go through the pages. The colors blended, the story, the creative thought to use a cactus and a tumbleweed, make this children's book memorable in the mind. Carter Goodrich shares his talents and lights our minds to want to be just as creative. In my collection, I love this book.
The lone cactus who doesn 't want to be bothered realizes his mistake when the tumbleweed helps him get untangled from a cup. He grows so a flower. He kept hugging me and saying that he was a tumbleweed and laughing his head off. I think we read it again and again. As a parent, I also like that all the characters are actually desert creatures, so we can chat a little bit about the habitat. As an adult who would prefer to read children's books that I also enjoy 1,000 times, this makes the mark. The illustrations are funny and, I have to admit, it is also pretty clever to me. Finally, maybe after we read this many more times, the underlying point about helping each other might come through to my kindergartener as well...
For the school year, our school had a cactus theme. I keep this book on the bookshelf and students love to look through it. I read it aloud to the whole school and enjoyed the kids. Love the theme of “being nice to others ”. Helps my kids not to be so prickly!
I borrowed this book from the library to read to my children. We loved it all. The illustrations are soft and snazzy. A friend of mine loves plants and purchased some cacti for me recently so that I could repotted the book for her. Also, she loved it.
   childrens book
Read this to my preschool class, they enjoyed it... and as I have many cactus in the class, it made it even more poignant, not necessary...
   "Nobody Hugs a Cactus" but I want to hug this book.
The latest gem of a book combines the brevity and depth of a Haiku with the prowess of a master draftsman and watercolorist, all delivered by Goodrich's humor and singular character design. It is funny and thoughtful and I can not recommend it enough.
