Hugo the Happy Starfish: The Last Bully {Review}

hugo the last bully


Story time is a big deal in our home. I have always loved to read {thanks to my own mama reading to me!} and so I’m thrilled to spend time reading with my own boys now. We especially love colorful stories with great morals.


I was excited to have the opportunity to enjoy another Hugo the Happy Starfish book by Suzy Liebermann with the boys. Suzy’s book series supports the IB Learner Profiles and the Attitudes of the International Baccalaureate Program {PYP}. The Hugo the Happy Starfish series is award winning and is a “Best Book 2011″ and Best Book 2012”.  She believes that happiness can be learned and that feelings can be understood, even at a young age. Focusing on character building through positive attitudes will lead to a happy, self-confident and successful adults.

Hugo is a little starfish and so it’s not surprising that in this story he comes across several bigger fish in the ocean. Sadly, they are bigger fish with the wrong attitudes – they are bullies! After seeing his friend getting bullied, Hugo decides enough is enough. He forms the Anti-Bully Club and teaches the bullies a valuable lesson about respect.

By working together as a group, Hugo and his friends manage to show the bullies that there is always a bigger fish in the sea and that happiness comes from respecting others not bullying them.

THE LAST BULLY is great tale to teach a lesson about one of the biggest issues around. This book is a great way to teach RESPECT.


All three of my boys enjoy the Hugo the Happy Starfish books! In The Last Bully, they heard about the importance of being fair and never picking on someone. Hugo and his friends found the ABC or Anti Bullying Club in this book, so that they can make sure no one is treated poorly. Jorryn and Zane enjoyed coloring on the last page of the book, which is left blank so kids can illustrate their own ideas for how not to bully or how they could help a friend who is being bullied. The message of the book is great and it’s a great way for kids to see an age-appropriate way how they can help end bullying and be kind and respectful to everyone they meet. We also love the colorful pictures and great characters. There are also some Spanish words sprinkled throughout the book, which I love since we have been working on learning Spanish this year!


If you are looking for a great series to enjoy with your family, I’d definitely recommend enjoying Hugo the Happy Starfish together!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
