Hippo by Lisa Regan


Hippo by Lisa Regan

What would happen if a pygmy hippo came to stay? How would you look after it? Where would it sleep? What would it eat (baked beans, fruit or cream cakes?) and how would you play with it? Wild Things! gives young readers a first introduction to exotic animals around the world, looking at how and where they really live and what they need to survive, as it becomes clear that they must be posted back! Each book also includes a final fact spread to explain why each animal is suited to living in its own environment in the wild, as well as how we can help to keep it there.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
