Hugo- mean, bloodthirsty and highly dangerous

Mia Nilsson, illustrated by Mia Nilsson

Circus performer and tight-rope dancer Hugo the crocodile is lost, and ends up deep in the forest in the North. Here Hugo has to make a home for himself and find new friends but that´s easier said than done when  in the opinion of the other animals in the forest you´re an alien beast, maybe a dragon, a dinosaur or a monster.


This is a simple classic picture-book story where you wonder how it will all end. Will Hugo be accepted by the other animals?


The book has a delightful humorous tone with lovely, clever, descriptive pictures, a brilliant layout and a good storyline. A good book for parents looking for a heart-warming modern story with just the right amount of excitement. We find ourselves in a book world comparable to The Seven Mile Forest.
