Hugo loved summer when the schools were closed because he could do nothing all day and rest. He was a clever student and he would have been able to skip a few grades if he was more attentive in class. Though he missed his teachers and friends and playing during the break, Hugo did not like school. He hated waking up in the mornings and sometimes he faked sickness so that he did not have to go to school. Hugo had a beautiful room with a large beautiful bed, a library with a lot of storybooks, a shelf for toys, and a desk. No one liked to enter his room because he was too lazy to clean his room. He also broke his promises because he was lazy. His parents wanted him to change, become a bit responsible, but nothing seemed to work. He did not care for personal hygiene either. Things changed one day when two tooth worms, George and Arthur, found their way into Hugo's mouth! What were the lessons Hugo learned after his visit to the dentist?

Lazy Hugo by Sajjad Sattari Niya is a story that teaches children several good messages; first not to lie, then not to be lazy, and lastly to always take care of personal hygiene. It is a good story to encourage children to take care of their personal hygiene and make them understand the negative effects of laziness. The illustrations are colorful and lively and they bring the characters alive and give a good pace and movement to the story. The messages make it a perfect story for tutors and parents to read out to youngsters and make them become more responsible and get rid of their laziness.
