The Book

This is a simple relatable story about an adorable little hippo named Herbert.  He loves to go to the playground with his toys and enjoys copious adventures on the park's slide.  He loves climbing up the ladder, positioning himself to launch and using his favourite teddy for a test run.  His imagination kicks into gear and he envisions himself and his teddy diving into a deep purple sea.  But wait!  Now he imagines he is a truck climbing up, up, up a mountain.  Oh what wonderful fun he has every single visit! 

The "Hippo Park Pals" mini picture books are sure to delight preschoolers.  The illustrations are very colourful and kid-friendly and greatly enrich the storyline.  I highly recommend this book.

Meet the Author

I am an Australian-born, Los Angeles based designer, illustrator and picture book maker whose work has appeared on everything from toys and tea cups to busses and buildings. 

My characters dance across Museo del Prado's ceramics and stationery, populate Swiss Credit Cards and sleep on the walls of a Copenhagen hotel (where I replaced the bed with a tent). 

I have exhibited, spoken at design conferences, and led workshops all over the world including the 8 day Pictoplasma Academy (a masterclass in character design). 

I have illustrated books I have written (Her Idea, The Best Book in the World, The New Rooster) and ones I have not (Jane Yolen’s A Bear Sat on my Porch Today, Lemony Snicket’s Swarm of Bees). I have also made the board book series Touchwords and Motormix

I am currently working on Hippo Park Pals, miniature full length picture books for the littlest readers.
