This is the fifth and final book in the ‘Hugo and Daddy’ series and it marks a major milestone for author Ric Hart who started the series following the birth of his son Hugo, shortly followed by the sad death of Hugo’s mummy Jade. This episode sees Hugo starting primary school and Ric could not be prouder… “To see Hugo starting primary school felt like a million miles away four years ago, but I did it, I got here, and I’m proud of every step.”
The book shares the journey of Daddy taking Hugo to school for his first day at primary school and sees them turning what can be quite an overwhelming experience for children into something to embrace with confidence. Ric sees his books as a way of turning negative trauma into positive magic for Hugo and hopes that, when he grows older, Hugo will see how Daddy turned those tragic years into something beautiful for him.
Ric says to Hugo: “I hope you enjoy our latest and final adventure. Who knows what the future will bring, but I’m embracing it with love, joy and inner peace with our wonderful boy, Hugo Jaden Hart.”
About the Author
Ric Hart, who lost his wife, Jade, shortly after she gave birth to their son, Hugo, has become a respected book author. Within a year of losing Jade, Ric ran a marathon in her memory. He then turned to writing children’s books and poetry at the start of the pandemic in 2020 to help him work through his grief. Over the last two years, Ric has published four children’s bereavement books which form the ‘Hugo and Daddy’ series. His fifth and final children’s book entitled Hugo and Daddy’s School Adventures is now available to pre-order before the publication date of 1st September 2022.
Now four years of age, Hugo is starting primary school in Misterton, England in September. Ric is very excited launching his final children’s book as it marks a milestone for him and for Hugo. The net proceeds from this book will be donated to Misterton Primary School.
Ric says, “I’ve left a legacy for Jade, myself, and also for Hugo to carry forward throughout his life and I’m so proud of that. I know my journey through writing will spark strength, confidence, and hope throughout Hugo’s life. One day whenever he’s lost, worried, unsure, I hope what I did will inspire him to become an amazing person as he grows older.”
Ric decided all his books would help special charities: Way – widowed and young – benefited from his autobiography Pupy Love, written in lockdown in 2020. The bereavement charity, Cruse, benefited from his first children’s book Hugo and Daddy’s Night-time adventures, which become a top seller on Amazon within its first six months of launch, remaining in the top 50 bestsellers for months. The Children’s Bereavement Centre in Newark, England benefited from Ric’s next two books, Hugo and Daddy’s Superhero Adventures and Hugo and Daddy’s Thailand Adventures.
“Hugo and Daddy’s School Adventures” by Ric Hart will be available in paperback from all major book retailer from 1st September 2022 including Amazon:
