"On opposite sides of a quiet street lived two friends. From morning to evening, they played. You two are stuck together like glue!...So it was a shock when, one day, they had to stop and go inside...Where can you put friendship when friends are apart? Slowly, they learned. They found that, across the street and through windows, they could give each other a hug. They discovered that a smile is a hug. A wave is a hug"-- Provided by publisher.

The Big Hug
(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Two noodle-limbed, dot-eyed Black children, one wearing a red striped shirt and jeans, and one sporting a yellow dress, are inseparable buddies living "on opposite sides of a quiet street." But "when, one day, they had to stop and go inside," the friends must cope with sudden separation, feeling "as if their friendship had slipped out the window, into the quiet." As the unnamed crisis continues outside, the duo discovers that many non-hug activities ("pictures in windows/ and puppet shows") can convey the same emotions that hugs do. Author-illustrator Walker employs a warm paneled comics style, with thick linework and a rainbow-colored palette. Though contextualizing these events is left to adult readers, this is a hopeful read for contemporary youth, with a perennial message of love surviving distance. Ages 3--7. (Apr.)
