Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1-An uplifting story about conquering fears and making friends. Hugo, the scarf-sporting avian protagonist, prefers walking to flying. He enjoys his ground-based Parisian life, making art instead of nests. While building a model of the Eiffel Tower, he meets Lulu, who invites him to the real landmark. He distracts her with land-bound activities until nighttime falls and she leaves. Saddened by her departure, Hugo admits his fear of flying to Bernard the owl. The old bird wisely remarks that "everyone is afraid of something," and teaches Hugo to fly. With more practice and encouragement, he conquers his fears and befriends Lulu. Mixed-media illustrations delight with rich colors, subtly textured paper backgrounds, and varied perspectives. Drawn with almost stick-figurelike simplicity, the birds charm with their vivacious expressiveness. Playful endpapers feature Hugo engaged in his creative pursuits in the front papers and playing with Lulu in the back pages. Pair this with Rob Scotton's Splish, Splash, Splat! (HarperCollins, 2011) or Melanie Watt's Scaredy Squirrel (Kids Can, 2006) for additional inspiration for anxious youngsters.-Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova, formerly at Chappaqua Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Hugo is a bird who likes his activities close to the ground. Truth be told, he is afraid to fly. So when a cutie named Lulu asks him to fly with her to the top of the Eiffel Tower, he comes up with plenty of excuses for them to do something else: playing in the park, splashing in the fountain, going to the ballet. But Hugo feels he let his new friend down, and he asks a wise old owl for help with his phobia. Here, the story takes a familiar turn as Hugo learns everyone is afraid of something. When Lulu reappears the next day, Hugo confesses his hesitation, but with the help of a good woman, he soars. What sets this story apart from others with the same basic arc is Dominguez’s delightful ink and tissue paper collages. Though the lead characters are simply executed, with black ink outlining and highlighting their basic shapes, the Paris setting is neatly captured. Parisians lounge in the park, gas lamps add effect, and the Eiffel Tower looms over the city. A charming little ode to overcoming fear. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Ilene Cooper

See what can happen when you forget to be afraid...

Hugo is a bit different from other birds, he prefers to walk than fly. Actually, it is not so much a preference as it is a fear of flying. He spends his days in a lovely park in Paris until that fateful moment when Lulu, a little bird, flew by and noticed Hugo's artwork.

It looks just like the Eiffel tower and Lulu wants to show him from the air. That would mean flying and Hugo is too afraid and like any wise bird, he has quite a few excuses.

Lulu is not to be put off, so with the help of a trusty friend Hugo is about to find his wings and all the things that he has been missing.

A simple straightforward story with charming illustrations that are not too busy for your young reader.

I bought the book for my daughter. She was 4 at the time and the books message was amazing. It taught her that there is a whole world out there to explore. The illustrations are so well put together that everyone can enjoy the book. Well worth the money spent to get this book.

The combination of Ms. Dominguez's well crafted mixed media illustrations and her charming storytelling make for a fun read that is both inspiring and beautiful to look at. It's a book worth reading over and over because with each read, you notice something new about the quaint Parisian setting that Angela has created for Hugo and Lulu to enjoy.

Well-told and beautifully illustrated, Let's Go, Hugo has a message to convey, but - like the best children's books - it doesn't drum you over the head with it. And getting past your fears.... I could argue that this is one of the most important lessons - not only for kids, but also for us children-of-all-ages. (As a side note: I wish I'd had this book when I visited Paris a couple years back. I was half-way up the Eiffel Tower myself - when I remembered I had a paralyzing fear for heights. I soldiered on and made it to the top, but boy could I have used me a lil Hugo!)

This is a great story for facing one's fears and over-coming them, while making new friendships. Angela's illustrations of Paris are a delight, and each page presents us with an adorable little bird named Hugo. The multi-layered illustrations mimic the multi-faceted character who's charming personality wins over our hearts.

Let's Go Hugo! is a charming, beautifully written and illustrated book that every child (and adult!) can resonate with. Angela has found a creative and captivating way to tell a story about a little bird in a big city who learns to overcome his greatest fear. The illustrations are wonderfully executed, unique, and full of that lovely Parisian flavor that anyone who has been to or dreams of going to Paris can immediately recognize. I can't wait to find out what Hugo's next adventure will be!
