"Hugo & the Red Balloon is one of those books that'll take your breath away and lift you up. It is a book that captures both the joy and silliness of being a kid as well the teachable moments of loss through a child's eyes. Like the buoyant French film it calls to mind, this book joins the best of children's literature which can be meaningful and beloved even for us adults."
