When this larger than life chap with his more than generous buttocks landed on my doorstep I fell in love instantly,
Zippo the Super Hippo is a 'cheeky' little picture book from author of 'Mum and Dad Glue' Kes Gray and the illustrator behind some of my favourite illustrated offerings including 'Mr Snappy's Travel Journal' Nikki Dyson.
Zippo confides in his chum Roxi the Oxpicker that not having an obvious super power other than plodding and getting muddy is becoming something of a problem. As trusted 'life coach', Roxi takes it upon herself to help Zippo the Hippo realise that his big Butt may just be the making of him.
With hilarious laugh-out-loud moments of utter indignity and potential chaos Zippo complete with cape and GIANT super-hero pants realises sometimes a large behind can come in handy!
Zippo The Super Hippo is a triumphant and gregarious tale of having faith in your differences and celebrating them.
Zippo The Super Hippo is released on the 16th July
