The Queen's Orang-Utan Reviews


PRAISE FOR `FIRST HIPPO ON THE MOON':
"TV star David Walliams is as adept at writing for the under-fives as for older children. Pre-schoolers will roar with laughter at The First Hippo on the Moon... " - Daily Express

"Part Aesop, part Spike Milligan... this is rollicking stuff. With heart and great illustrations by Tony Ross." - Big Issue

"I absolutely love David Walliams's books. In a few more years they will become classics." - Sue Townsend, author of Adrian Mole

"a new Roald Dahl" - The Times
