A 2020 Goodreads Choice Awards Finalist: Best Picture Books

"Readers will agree: All differences should be hugged, er, embraced." --Kirkus Reviews

"The lesson is a simple, familiar one--selflessness and sympathy are key to making friends--but Adamson's gentle humor and his eager-eyed characters' yearning become an eloquent testimony to the power of a little TLC." --Publishers Weekly

"Adamson's warm and expressive watercolor and pencil illustrations show Bernard wrapped around a ticklish crocodile, snuggled up beside a blissed-out bunny, and patiently listening to a bat's troubles during an evening therapy session. This small bird discovers he can reach new heights by leaning on his peers...Told with humor and heart, this sweet friendship tale soars." --School Library Journal

"[A] humorous story with an important takeaway: our differences can be the very thing that make us dear to others, and embracing those differences can lead to the best things in life." --Booklist

"Adamson's watercolor and pencil art moves from vibrant full spreads to vignette-styled pages, lending both movement and focus, and wide-eyed, lavender-hued Bernard cuts an appealingly quirky figure with his wiggly wings...a celebration of cuddles and snuggles." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
