I Am Not a Copycat!

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Hugo the hippo enjoys practising his water ballet but finds it very annoying that Bella the bird copies his every move. She even dresses like him and follows him to the swimming pool. But when other swimmers stop to admire Hugo and Bella’s moves, Hugo decides he’d rather be famous than unique and that it’s quite good fun being alike after all.

This entertaining story, with its bold and cheerful pictures bursting with colour, is told entirely through dialogue, making it perfect for reading aloud. Fans of I Don’t Want to be a Pea will be delighted to see the return of unlikely companions Hugo and Bella in another quirky and delightful book about the challenges of friendship.
