The Hug Machine

by Scott Campbell
Overall: 3 out of 5 stars

I was confused from the get-go on this one. Is the mailbox-type thing on the cover actually a Hug Machine? (Turns out, no – it’s actually a mailbox and the boy doing the hugging is the Hug Machine.) Some of the rhymes seemed forced, and this particular line rankled: “My hugs calm people down. They cheer them up. They make them go completely nuts!” In addition to the rhyme being forced, the picture with it shows absolutely no one going completely nuts. However, the concept of a little boy hugging everything in sight is pretty cute.
