Poor Hippopotamus has a spot on her bottomus – a big red spot which simply won’t go away, despite the best efforts of the numerous animals who come to examine it, offer diagnoses and suggest a wide range of treatments.
She tries sunbathing while standing on her head, wearing woolly pants and socks, scrubbing herself with soot and other more unpleasant remedies involving pliers and sharp needles but nothing works. Until, that is, a small boy has a sneaky peek and discovers something he thought he had lost...
This hilarious rhyming tale from a favourite author/illustrator team is certain to tickle small children. An inventive, wacky and very funny story is perfectly complemented by mirth-inducing illustrations, which will keep both adults and young readers entertained as they enjoy sharing this delightful picture book.
