There’s always room for silliness and imagination in picture books and this is as silly and imaginative as you can get.
Squeakopotamus is a cross between a mouse and a hippopotamus and he is living in Kate and her brothers house eating all the toast and cheese and potatoes and peas.
Mum and dad don’t want a bar of it so the children get him out of the house for something to eat. It rains and the importance of rain is that it makes things shrink. Will it work with the squeakopotamus? read it and find out.
Easy read-a-loud story with Ross Kinnairds illustrations creating a credible cross between a mouse and hippo. I wouldn’t want him in my house.
A good laugh for juniors.
