Hue Boy

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children’s Books

Hue Boy is smaller than his friends and, no matter what he eats, he doesn’t seem to grow. Everyone has advice from stretching exercises to herbal baths but it makes no difference. His mother even takes him to the wise man of the village and to the doctor. Then Hue Boy’s dad returns home - and before he realises it Hue Boy begins to grow.

Many children will identify with Hue Boy in this heart warming story set in a Caribbean village. The beautiful pictures evoking sunshine and nature are the perfect accompaniment to this familiar story.
