This is a great story about finding courage and overcoming fears, and getting by with a little help from friends. Hugo is a joyful, multi-talented, bird about town. His character is really sophisticated, which is so refreshing to see in a children’s book. The illustrations are drawn in a beautiful palate of yellow, greens and browns. The images of Paris as the backdrop to the story is truly lovely and makes me long to take Dolly to visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Read more at www.diapers-and-daydreams.com
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.
The illustrations are adorable and beautiful, but the main reason this book is special is the message. It teaches children (and let's face, it adults too) about overcoming your fears and being open to letting the people around you help you unlock your potential.
Not only would this be a great book for kids, but also someone just graduating and finding their place in the world. Highly recommend!
