Hugo the Hare's Rainy Day by Jez Alborough

Hugo the Hare hates to get wet, and when the rain comes he huddles under his umbrella. But Hugo's friends are stuck in the rain and when Hugo comes to their rescue he can't help but get all soggy! However, perhaps having a bit of a splish splash isn't quite as bad as Hugo thinks...

About the Author

Jez Alborough

Jez Alborough was born in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey in 1959. As a young boy he was always very creative but it was not until a guest bought him a box of crisp white paper, some pencils and a rubber that he expressed his creativity in drawing. As Jez says "It was an act of support and encouragement which I have never forgotten. The identity of this guest remains to this day a mystery. I like to think he was my guardian angel."

Jez is very much in demand for storytelling events for children, as well as speaking about his work to librarians and teachers.

He lives in London with his wife and enjoys playing the guitar and walking along the river.
