Ready for a nap, young Fred the Basset Hound goes to his room after an energetic morning of play and the unthinkable happens: his favorite comfy, red bed has disappeared! After a search of his house that involved an exchange with a less than helpful mouse, Fred sets out on a journey outside to find his bed. Along the way he meets a sedentary frog, an enthusiastic cricket, and a sympathetic owl. The dilemma of his lost bed intensifies as Fred realizes he has strayed too far from home without telling his father that he left. A Bed for Fred is a delightful journey relatable to young children, figuring out the world they live in as well as their first experiences with complication and change.

The Heart of a Hummingbird

Hardcover – September, 30 2017

[maxbutton id="2" text="Hardcover | $29.95" url="#"][maxbutton id="1" url="https://hugohousebookstore.com/product/the-heart-of-a-hummingbird-updf/" text="Ebook | $9.95" ]

A great fire rages on the African grasslands, driving all the animals into the open for safety.  Enemies must come together and figure out what to do. King Elephant has an idea , but will it put out the fire?  A little hummingbird dares to offer another solution—but no one wants to listen to him.  Will King Elephant finally pay attention to the little bird, or will the animal’s homeland be destroyed?

In a beautifully illustrated book, an ancient African folk tale from Ghana comes alive through the grandfather storyteller (modeled after the author’s own grandfather who related this story to him many years ago), teaching children and adults alike what it means to have courage in the face of overwhelming adversity, of standing up for what you believe even when no one listens.  The Heart of a Hummingbird will capture your imagination and empower you to always find a solution—no matter what!
