Synopsis

Best of Friends by Shen Roddie

Hippo and Pig are neighbours as well as great friends. Then one day, Hippo decides to do a good deed for Pig, and cuts down the hedge between them so that they can see into each other's houses. Hippo is disgusted on seeing his neighbour prancing around in a tutu, while Pig is equally revolted by the sight of Hippo chewing his toenails. Can they ever be friends again? Amusing text and hilarious illustrations tell a moral tale of how even good friends need their privacy.

About the Author

Shen Roddie

Shen Roddie was born in Singapore but she now lives in Oxford. She is the author of about 30 picture books including The Gossipy Parrot and Sandbear. She began her career as a graduate journalist and got to interview the crew of Apollo 17 — the last men to walk on the moon! Since then she has worked as head of media for a large oil company, spending a dizzy amount of time on the waves to-ing and fro-ing on ferries from the mainland to the refinery on an island. She has also been a copywriter, radio presenter and, for the last ten years, a children’s writer.
