Hugo the Flying Firefighter by Lorette Broekstra


Hugo the Flying Firefighter by Lorette Broekstra

Hugo the elephant becomes an unexpected hero when from high up in his plane he spots smoke coming from one of the houses in Hometown. Quick thinking Hugo sky-writes Fire above the town, and he's first on the ground to save the house from burning down. Hooray for Hugo.


This simple story will be a hit with very young children. A lovely book for babies and toddlers.
