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.
