This picturebook with sweet illustrations in dreamy colours tells the warm story of a friendship between a little Parisian girl and a park-warden pigeon, Hugo. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times & The Sunday Times Ireland *
Hugo is such a wonderful story, with equally beautiful illustrations, showing children that friends can be found all over and with all kinds of people. It shows that it's good to reach out to the people around you and the importance of community. I think now more than ever that's a really strong message. * Me, Him, the Dog and the Baby *
