Happy I'm a Hippo by Richard Edwards


Happy I'm a Hippo by Richard Edwards

This is an irresistible read-aloud romp! Hippo doesn't want to be a hippo. She'd rather be an eagle or a buffa-luffa-lo. That's until she meets a scary crocodile and discovers that hippos are brave and kind too. Catchy rhymes and funny, lyrical prose make this a joy to read aloud, while the fabulous, lush illustrations brim with details for children to find. Happy I'm a Hippo is destined to become an essential storytime favourite.'
