When a toddler is in the back of a bicycle with his mother, he loses his hugsap. A search in the flowing rain does not yield anything. The monkey has meanwhile been dragged by a group of mice to their hollow, after which other animals are being taken care of. For example, hedgehogs play with him and peek the monster in his eye until the monkey ends up in the water. There he is caught by a friendly old doll doctor who monitors the monkey and puts in his window where the toddler finds his beloved hug. Textless picture book with a wishful story, in which fantasy and reality pass through. Each page is filled with one to four soft colored water scales in white frames; These tell the story flawlessly. On the atmospheric plates are all sorts of (funny) details to be seen so children will be "read" after a few times. The banners are illustrated with a detailed picture of the environment on which all the animals from the story can be seen. Contrary to the prints in the interior, on which the guur is autumn and winter weather, it seems like summer here.
For the first time appeared in 1986 and now a 'classic'.
