Product Description

Huge. Grey. Round. With a pitted surface. No, that’s not the moon. It’s a hippo in orbit! David Walliams, Tony Ross and these funny hippos all know how to dream BIG. Do you? Two hippos both want to be first to the moon. Sheila is straight from the swamp: backed by good friends, a home-made rocket and lots of pluck. But her rival, Hercules Waldorf-Franklin III, has tons of dosh and a super-snazzy space shuttle. Take a guess: who will win this space race? A book with everything: brilliant pictures, a crazy story, rockets, hippos and a touching message. If you have a dream, you can fulfil it. (Especially if you fart and cheat a little.)

David Walliams is a comedian, writer and actor and is best known for his partnership with Matt Lucas on the hugely popular sketch show Little Britain, and as a star judge on Britain’s Got Talent.

David is also well known for his charitable work for Sports Relief, part of Comic Relief. He took up swimming in his youth because he was overweight, and has subsequently completed long distance swims of the English Channel, the Strait of Gibraltar and the River Thames, raising millions of pounds for charity!

In 2008 David’s first children’s book The Boy in the Dress was published, illustrated by Quentin Blake. He has gone on to take the children’s literary world by storm, dominating sales charts and twice winning the National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year. His books have now been translated into 40+ languages, and also include picture books illustrated by Tony Ross.

Tony Ross

Multi-award-winning Tony Ross has become one of the best-known creators of original and traditional picture books and his work has been published all over the world. As well as his own books, he has illustrated books for authors such as Roald Dahl, Paula Danziger and Michael Palin.
