I told you of a Hugo the Happy Starfish book in an earlier review. Today, I am going to tell you of another Hugo the Happy Starfish book. This one is entitled, "The Last Bully", by Suzy Liebermann . Just like with the last book I reviewed, this one has a strong moral message. The message is an anti-bullying message.
Hugo was traveling through the ocean when he came upon Clooney and Bandit. Bandit was saying some horrible, false things to Clooney and was bullying Clooney. Hugo told Clooney to ignore Bandit. The next day, Hugo was once again traveling the ocean and happened upon Bandit being bullied by a larger ocean creature than Bandit was. The bully was saying similar things to Bandit that Bandit had said to Clooney the day before. Instead of Hugo ignoring this, Hugo decided to be proactive and stand up for Bandit the way he did for Clooney the day before. Bandit quickly realizes that he doesn't like the way the bully made him feel and thought that Clooney probably didn't like the way he had made him feel. They made up and decided to make the ABC Club. The ABC Club is the Anti-Bullying Club to stand up and stop bullying ocean-wide.
Just like with the other Hugo the Happy Starfish books, it is brightly illustrated and uses simple to understand words so that a very young child can enjoy the book as well as an older child. My oldest daughter, 11, loved reading this book to her siblings. It caught all of their attentions from beginning to end.
