My Little Sister Hugged an Ape by Bill Grossman. il Kevin Hawkes.
Alfred A. Knopf/Random House: NY, 2004.

"My little sister" hugs animals all the way through the alphabet. There is a rhyme for each animal she hugs. Like in My Little Sister Ate One Hare, the wordplay is delightful.

The pictures are brightly colored and dramatic. There are a few that really stand out-the hugging spree billboard, the vole dragging her down its hole, the tailless moose, the ferret kissing iguana, and the pop-eyed ape. Overall, I think I enjoyed the rhymes more, but I still think Grossman and Hawkes make a good team.
