The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of The English Association 2013 (Fiction 4-7)
September 2012 Book of the Month. This best-selling author/illustrator team have come up with a cracker of a story told with flair and invention. Poor hippopotamus has a spotamus on her bottomus…How on earth can it be cured? Everyone has a view and many try to get rid of it but, the spot is stuck fast. What on earth can it be? Excellent jokes abound in both the words and the pictures of this delightful book.
Hippospotamus by Jeanne Willis
Hippopotamus had a spotamus ...on her bottomus! It's Measles! said Weasel. It's Hippopox! said Fox. It's Jungle Fever! said Beaver. But in the end the spotamus turned out to be something hilariously unexpected.
A dream team of writer and illustrator! -- The Times
