PUBLISHER: CLARION BOOKS
AGE RECOMMENDED: 4+
Hector the fiddler and his dog Hugo were inseparable friends. Hugo always admired Hector and when he retired, Hugo started playing the fiddle. The daily night he plays the fiddle and the whole neighbourhood enjoyed his music. The news of the fiddle playing dog travelled afar and the famous musician the bear asked Hugo to join his troop of musicians. His troop was full of different music, playing animals. The invitation was so tempting for Hugo, and he thought about travelling the entire world and playing the fiddle to a huge audience. Hector was filled with jealousy and he spat out some unkind words to him. Bear’s Big Band is a hit everywhere they go. Hector listens to them on the radio, and misses playing his fiddle and making music, and really misses Hugo.
Is this the end of Hector and Hugo’s lifelong friendship, or will music reunite them?
This is the second book from the bear and the piano series. Litchfield’s illustrations are so whimsical, and this book also delivered the same magical feeling. This book talks about jealousy, friendship, forgiveness, and following your dreams.
