Hugo thought this place looked familiar.

When he peeked over the bushes he saw …

 … that the string led right back to his little house!

When Hugo followed the string to the end, he got quite a surprise!

That mysterious red string wasn’t special at all!

It was just a very long thread from his old underwear! It seems that Biscuit had carried her favorite new “toy” down the hill, through the tunnel, all through town, into the noodle shop, into the schoolhouse, through the forest, up the hill, and all the way back home again!

Hugo was disappointed … and EMBARRASSED!

But then everyone began to sing—
“We were eight strangers who followed the string!
It really was a wonderful thing!
There
is
something special where the string ends—
meeting new people we now call friends!”

So, after serving a snack of crumpets and tea …

Hugo said good night to his newfound friends,

put on his favorite red pajamas …

 … and, just like every night, went to sleep with a smile on his face.
