Victor Hugo’s Wondrous Feast: The True Story of How the Author of Les Misérables Invited the World to Love

by: David Warner

The heartwarming, true story about the transformative power of love and good works, nurtured in the home of Victor Hugo, author of Les Misérables.

Guernsey, France, 1860

At the marketplace, a five-year-old girl is carrying a baby and crying, hungry for food. She is just one of the many needy children in the streets, and Adèle Hugo, wife of author Victor Hugo, is moved to make a difference. Victor is equally determined and organizes a Christmas party at the Hugo mansion and invites a few malnourished children, convinced that a good meal is what they need.

This first Christmas feast turns into weekly dinners every Monday where up to forty children are invited. For seven more years—week in, week out—children and adults come to the Hugo mansion for dinners and the annual Christmas feast.

This timeless, true story with beautiful illustrations will inspire young hearts to embrace empathy and do good works, especially during the holidays. Victor Hugo’s Wondrous Feast teaches that “to love is to act” and reminds us that it only takes one person to make a difference.
