Atinuke, Birgitta Sif
A Parisian pigeon passionate about people makes a new friend – with gentle themes of community and inclusivity.
Hugo the pigeon has an important job. He looks after the park and everyone who lives there. Everyone except for the Somebody whose curtains are never open. But one day, Hugo is so busy doing his showing-off dance that he doesn’t see the dog approaching … and Somebody has to fly to the rescue!
A charming story about community and the value of friendship, beautifully brought to life by Birgitta Sif’s energetic illustrations.
A sweet picture book that tells a warm story about caring for others. * The Sunday Times * 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.
