The First Hippo on the Moon from best-selling children’s author-David Walliams and illustrated by Tony Ross this book would be a welcome addition to any household with small children. Rose is just getting to the age where she will sit and have a book shown and read to her without trying to eat the pages! Granted she doesn’t much care about the story, I suppose it’s all about the intonation in the voice of the narrator but still, she thoroughly enjoyed being shown this lovely book which has been illustrated amazingly well by Tony Ross. It’s got everything that would appeal to young children; a good funny and charming story with larger than life colourful characters on every page. Two big hippos, one even bigger dream, which one will make it to the moon first and what on earth (or should that be moon) will happen when they get there?! A very enjoyable read for me, so a definite thumbs up.
