Red House Reader Review

Reader review: Hippospotamus - Paperback - 9781849394161
Charlie Chalmers
Red House Reviewer

Charlie found this book to be really entertaining. The storyline follows a hippo who finds a spot on her bottom and asks all of her animal friends what it is and how to get off. Naturally that leads to quite a few references to the Hippo¹s bottom which Charlie thought was hilarious! The illustrations are equally amusing with the illustrator, Tony Ross, capturing the humour of the story all the way through. The rhyming text was clever although a few of the words went over Charlie¹s head as he¹s only three years old so it might be better for slightly older children. Hippospotamus is a lively and giggly romp!
