Old Hu-Hu

Author(s): Kyle Mewburn

NZ Picture Books

Everyone loved Old Hu-Hu. But nobody loved him quite as much as little Hu-Hu-Tu. 

Old Hu-Hu is a thoughtful tale of young Hu-Hu-Tu's search for understanding of what has happened to his beloved Old Hu-Hu, who flew all the way to the moon (or so they said), then fell down dead.

Sensitively written, this is a beautiful story of death and the celebration of life, with powerful, evocative illustrations by Rachel Driscoll.
