Hugo is a dapper little bird who adores the Eiffel Tower -- or at least his view of it from down here. Hugo, you see, has never left the ground. So when he meets another bird, the determined Lulu, who invites him to fly with her to the top of the tower, Hugo stalls, persuading Lulu to see, on foot, every inch of the park in which he lives instead. Will a nighttime flying lesson from Bernard the Owl, some sweet and sensible encouragement from Lulu, and some extra pluck from Hugo himself finally give this bird the courage he needs to spread his wings and fly?

Review:

"What sets this story apart...is Dominguez's delightful ink and tissue paper collages....A charming little ode to overcoming fear."--Booklist

"An excellent book for helping children understand that being fearful is natural, but that overcoming fears can lead to exciting new adventures and experiences."--LMC

"An uplifting story about conquering fears and making friends....Pair this with Rob Scotton's "Splish, Splash, Splat!."..or Melanie Watt's "Scaredy Squirrel.""--School Library Journal

"Tone and artwork mix beautifully in this endearing tale...The book charms from the start, but Dominguez excels with her slow revelation of Hugo's qualms....A story that could have been pinned to the ground by didacticism instead soars." Kirkus
