Families collaborate on Christmas adventure book

Since his wife, Jade, died in 2018 after the birth of their son, Hugo, Ric Hart took to writing to help come to terms with his loss, and to give Hugo a lasting legacy of his mother. He wrote a book for children about bereavement, Hugo and Daddy’s Night-time Adventures, then an autobiography, Pupy Love. Two more children’s books are in the pipeline: Hugo and Daddy’s Thailand Adventures and Hugo and Daddy’s Superhero Adventures – part of the Hugo and Daddy’s suite of books.
But now, with a new lady in his life, Victoria, and her three sons Harry, George and Charlie, the two families are jointly working on the next book, Hugo and Daddy’s Christmas Adventures. The three boys are helping to illustrate the new book.
Ric gives a peep inside the cover of the book, which will be out in time for Christmas: “It will tell the story of Hugo going on an adventure with Santa at night and visiting the North Pole. I am hoping this provides an opportunity for the boys and gives them the confidence that anything is possible in life going forward. They are all great readers, so they are finding the writing of the book, and illustrating it fascinating.”
Pupy Love is available from Amazon at £12.99 paperback or £19.99 hardcover. Waterstones, Foyles, and the Book Depository will also sell copies. Hugo and Daddy’s Night-time Adventures is in paperback, retails at £5.99, and is available from Amazon.
