Yousef has allways yearned 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 couldn’t do this because he was covered in very sharp spikes. “Look… I DO like you,” explained Percy the Pot Plant, “But I can’t get close to you. You’re too spiky.”
It was a bit of a thorny problem (haha) then Queenie suggested he made friends with Carlos. Being a cactus, Carlos was covered in sharp spines too but when they tried to hug it all went disastrously wrong. So who – if anyone – could hug and play with Yousef?
