Hugo the Starfish - The Last Bully Book Review

I recently was given the opportunity to review the book Hugo the Starfish- The Last Bully for free in exchange for my 100% honest and unbiased opinion on their product.

I love books that teaches kids about life lessons and that they actually learn from it. This book that I am talking about is called HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH - THE LAST BULLY. Here is a little bit about the book, it is a children's book that teaches them about confidence-boosting, being different is OK and the most important thing that it is never OK to bully.. The book is so well written and illustrated too.

 When my daughter was reading the book she did have ask me what a few things meant in the book meant though, but what I like is how Suzy gave the meaning to the words that my daughter had asked me about.

After my daughter finished reading the book I asked her what she learned from it and she told me that she learned that it is never ok to bully anybody no matter what the situation is. She also told me that if you are mean to somebody that something like that could happen to her too. My daughter told me that she really liked how all the fish ended up coming together to help one another. This book from Suzy Lieberman has been one of my favorites from her so far, especially with all the bullying going on in schools. I think schools should have this book in their collection in classrooms for students to read.

What I found really cute is that a couple of days later I found my daughter reading the book to a bunch of her stuffed elephants and telling them now remember it is never ok to bully each other. No matter what somebody might look like, act like, where they live just think how you would feel. It made me feel so proud of her.

Here is a little bit about the author Suzy Liebermann,
A native of Germany and former resident of the Dominican Republic, Mexico, the Islands of the Bahamas and Switzerland, Suzy Liebermann—now living in the USA—has travelled the world in pursuit of language, art, and culture.
Having found it, she now shares it with the world’s teachers, parents, and children through educational literature. Leveraging her decades of global experience teaching in German, Spanish, French, and English with a degree in foreign language translation and a master’s degree in business management and international business, she launched Happy Language Kids Publications in 2010 as an interactive language learning program for children and their young-at-heart elders. This program is particularly aligned with the aims and values she upheld as a teacher of cultural art and foreign language at a prestigious International Baccalaureate World School.

All in all I am so glad that she could learn the lesson and had fun reading the book and enjoyed it. Especially since we could use this for her homeschooling lessons too.  HUGO has so many other books to, if you would like to check them out you can do so by clicking HERE. You can also purchase one of HUGO's many books by visiting or Amazon. These books are a really good starting point for 3 years up to 12. After my daughter finished reading the book I found her on their website playing some of their games. You know the book has to be good if your child ends up on the internet looking them up.

Thanks Suzy Lierbermann for writing a book that my daughter actually like and learned from.

  1. Glad they are making books for kids on the subject now. Great meaning

  2. Sounds like a really great book. I love ones that have a moral and the kids totally get into the book.

  3. I love the idea of this book. I will have to get this book for my son and daughter because we have already had the term "bullying" come up for my son, and he is only in second grade. I think the teacher handled the situation, but I would love to supply his school with a book or two on the subject that maybe they could pass around read to the younger age groups. Thanks for sharing.

  4. This is a eye appealing book that teaches about a serious subject bullying. It helps children learn about bullying in a way that they can understand. We need to read these type of books to our kids a lot so they will learn to not let bully's have their way!
