Hippo Has A Hat
By (author) Julia Donaldson; Illustrated by Nick Sharratt
There’s chaos in the clothes shop when the animals go on a glorious shopping spree. Zebra’s zip is stuck and Toad’s tracksuit is far too big, but Flamingo finds a stylish bag, and Caterpillar’s shoes are really cool. Even the smallest toddler will enjoy the wonderfully silly animal antics in this book, so join in the fun — you’ve never seen a fashion show like it! Trademark Julia Donaldson rhymes and rhythms are perfect to read aloud, and Nick Sharratt’s mischievous and funny illustrations make this bright and playful book a sure winner. Just right for toddlers! Look out for: ANIMAL MUSIC, CHOCOLATE MOUSSE FOR GREEDY GOOSE, ONE MOLE DIGGING A HOLE, TODDLE WADDLE and GOAT GOES TO PLAYGROUP.
