Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month, August 2015 Everyone wants a super power but trying to find out what yours is can be tricky! Zippo the Hippo wants to be special but being good at plodding and getting muddy doesn’t seem to be enough. Then Zippo tries flying. Flying would be a great super power! Unfortunately, Zippo can’t fly…but he can land spectacularly on account of his great big bottom! Not Zippo is a super hippo with a very special and unusual talent! ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Zippo the Super Hippo by Kes Gray

A new superhero has arrived and he has a very large bottom! Zippo doesn't want to be an ordinary hippo. He wants to be super! Being good at swimming and splashing in mud aren't really superpowers, though. Perhaps he can fly like his friend Roxi. But who's ever heard of a flying hippopotamus? Especially one with such a big bottom ...From award-winning author Kes Gray and exciting new illustrating talent Nikki Dyson. This fantastically funny superhero will be flying into children's imaginations everywhere!
