The Lovereading4Kids comment
Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month, August 2015 Best-selling David Walliams and Tony Ross have teamed up for a great hippo space adventure. Sheila is a hippo with BIG ideas. Specifically, she is determined to be the first hippo on the Moon. But Hercules Waldorf-Franklin 111 is also determined to be the first hippo on the Moon. And he is a very rich hippo indeed. Who is going to win the great space-race that follows? Several hilarious space-antics later the winner is declared and spce travel will never seem quite the same again! ~ Julia Eccleshare
The First Hippo on the Moon by David Walliams
Number one bestselling author David Walliams presents this explosively funny space adventure for children of 3 and up. Illustrated by artistic genius Tony Ross and hilariously read by the author himself. Warning: very silly sound-effects included!
Two big hippos. One ENORMOUS dream. Who can make it to the moon first? 3 ...2 ...1 ...BLAST OFF! Introducing a wonderfully charming and funny new picture book from two superstars!
'A pleasure to read. A beguilingly funny, original and thought-provoking tale... hilarious' Amanda Craig, The Times
'I absolutely love David Walliams's books. In a few more years they will become classics.' - Sue Townsend, author of Adrian Mole
