Hugo has built a grand city. He has filled it with skyscrapers, shopping centres and gas stations. There is even a little greenhouse made out of a small, see-through cake box. The whole room is full of his great city. When Mom asks Hugo to get some herbs from the real greenhouse outside, he jumps up with a start and the city collapses. In the greenhouse Hugo notices that the plants are no longer as lush as they used to be, that the bugs and birds, and mice and moles have disappeared. Hugo gets frightened and rushes back inside. Now he starts to build a totally different city. The kind, where everyone can live happily.
