What people are saying about A Hug for Harriet...
"Guiles (Harriet's Big Adventure, 2015) tells a very simple story well. Harriet’s plight is sympathetic but not overdone, and readers will enjoy seeing her desire for love and affection being met at last. It’s unknown how the donkeys come to be living on a farm or why some are moved, but for Harriet, as for small children, the world can be arbitrary like that. Whalen’s lovely, softly colored images are realistic yet still very expressive—a good choice that elevates the book.
Sweet, simple, and nicely illustrated."

"I gave this book to two little girls and they both loved it. It's nice and short and can be read at bedtime or anytime. It's a sweet story about a wonderful man and his love of animals. He changed the world for Harriet! Nice ending, too. Thanks you, Mr. Guiles, for sharing this cute story with the world."

"I gave this book, after meeting the author, as a gift to a four-year old. The feedback from the child's Mom is that she has read it to her so many times, she has it memorized."
