Zippo the Super Hippo

Psst: do you think this hippo’s behind looks rather large? So do we! A bottom like that is simply made to wear superhero pants. Zippo just needs his own special superpower. What do you think it might be? Is it: rolling in mud? Splashing? Or even flying…? Clue: it might have something to do with his rather large behind. (SPLAT!) Hippos, bottoms, giggles and funny pictures, all together in one book. Chances are it’ll be pretty super. Which it is. So hurry up and buy it.
