Review: Hannah and Sugar

Hannah’s life is predictable, safe. Every school day follows the same routine. But Sugar, Violet’s pet dog looks scary. She doesn’t figure in Hannah’s safe world. Hannah stays as far away from Sugar as she can.

But then Sugar goes missing all day and all night. Everyone is worried for Sugar. Even though Sugar is frightening, Hannah wonders about what it would be like to be lost, alone, sad and hungry.

Then she hears a little whimper.

Hannah and Sugar is a heart-felt tale about taking someone else’s point of view and overcoming fears. The result is truly heart-warming.

A wonderful tale encouraging the young to overcome fears by thinking about how others feel.
