Y is for Yousef: Yousef the Yearning Yucca
Yousef yearns for friendship. Not just someone to talk to but someone to play-fight with, to sit next to and to hug. We all need hugs – either to give or receive them – but Yousef can’t do this because his leaves are just too spiky.
“Look… I DO like you,” explains Percy, “But I can’t get close to you. You’re just too spiky.”
It’s a thorny problem (haha) then Queenie suggests he makes friends with Carlos. Being a cactus, Carlos is covered in spikes too but when they try to hug, both of them get hurt. OUCH!
So who – if anyone – can hug and play with Yousef?
