KIRKUS REVIEW

Hugo, a trained St. Bernard, grew restless in his lonely dog house on the mountain where he watched for skiers in trouble. His droopy eyes droop lower, until one day he sees a small boy lose his comrades. Hugo rushes to his aid, and, shortly the mortified dog finds himself in goggles and ski-cap, going down hill on one ski. In the full color illustrations, Mr. Freeman has not used his palette very artistically. And, although the pictures do have some appeal, Hugo looks like any old, lumbering St. Bernard; he has not been given a personality of his own. This tale does not live up to some of the author's earlier works, such as Fly High, Fly Low (1957).
