Synopsis

Henrietta the Hairy Hippo by An Vrombaut

Perfect for preschool children, 64 Zoo Lane had the highest viewing figures on CBeebies in 2011. With six classic 64 Zoo Lane stories now reissued, Lucy and her animal fans are bound to win yet more young fans. Lucy has some very strange neighbours with horns and humps, tails and trunks - that's because Lucy lives next door to the zoo! Every night, she climbs down the long long neck of Georgina the Giraffe and listens to one of them tell her a story...Tonight it's the story of Henrietta. Henrietta is hairy and all the other hippos laugh at her. So she goes off on her own in search of a new home. Have fun with 64 Zoo Lane at http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/64-zoo-lane/

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
