The First Hippo on the Moon Children's Book by David Walliams' - Review & Giveaway!

Written by comedian and best-selling children’s book author, David Walliams' and Illustrated by Tony Ross, The First Hippo on the Moon is a new picture book about two big hippo's and one enormous dream in a space race to the moon.
 
This story is lots of fun, Bethany loves it.
 
 
The Two Hippo's names are Hercules Waldorf-Franklin The Third and Shelia, they both want to be the first hippo on the moon!
 
They don't know about each other until they both get to the moon.
 
Hercules Waldorf-Franklin The Third is rather rude to Shelia when she gets to the moon so Shelia takes his Hippo-po-rocket and leaves him on the moon!
 
 
Shelia is unsure how Hercules Waldorf-Franklin The Third's Hippo-po-rocket works, and she crashes back to earth after the Hippo-po-rocket burns up entering earths atmosphere.
 
Her friends are worried as she lays motionless on the ground with her behind sizzling like a sausage, and they try to wake her up.
 
Just as they think the worst and they start walking away the hear a very large bottom burp (Bethany's favourite part of the story)!
 
Shelia goes onto claim the very first hippopotamus on the moon title, and never tells any one about Hercules Waldorf-Franklin The Third who is still stuck on the moon!
 
I think the book is very well illustrated and is eye catching and colourful, enough to keep Bethany hooked, looking and the pictures and listening to the story.
 
This Brand New book is currently available on Amazon RRP:£12.99

  29. This is a tough one!
    For my youngest (aged 5) it would probably be "dogs don't do ballet"
    and my eldest (7) it is currently "the owl who was afraid of the dark"
