Hugo is a little starfish and so it's not surprising that in this story he comes across several bigger fish in the ocean. Sadly, they are bigger fish with the wrong attitudes – they're bullies! After seeing his friend getting bullied, Hugo decides enough is enough. He forms the Anti-Bully Club and teaches the bullies a valuable lesson about respect.

‘THE LAST BULLY’ is a confidence-boosting book for children, showing them that being different is OK and the best way to deal with bullies is to tell someone about it.

Our Review

It's unfortunate that bullying is so prevalent in schools now. Even in the lower grades. My oldest is only 7 and we've already had a few incidents. This was a great book about being strong and standing up to bullies. My son enjoyed reading it and he read it to his younger brother several times. The pictures are bright and engaging and kept both their attention. Hugo teaches that it's ok to be different and that if your being bullied you need to tell an adult. There are other books in the Hugo series also. I plan on buying some of the others for my boys. They enjoy these so much!

About the Author


A native of Germany and former resident of the Dominican Republic, Mexico, the Islands of the Bahamas and Switzerland, Suzy Liebermann—now living in the USA—has travelled the world in pursuit of language, art, and culture.

Having found it, she now shares it with the world’s teachers, parents, and children through educational literature. Leveraging her decades of global experience teaching in German, Spanish, French, and English with a degree in foreign language translation and a master’s degree in business management and international business, she launched Happy Language Kids Publications in 2010 as an interactive language learning program for children and their young-at-heart elders.

This program is particularly aligned with the aims and values she upheld as a teacher of cultural art and foreign language at a prestigious International Baccalaureate World School.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. What a great book to teach children NOT to bully! I wish I had some children or grandchildren to read this to. Perhaps I should buy a copy and donate it to the local elementary school or a public day care center!
