The Heavy Hippo

The Heavy Hippo (2006) Post 389

The Heavy Hippo is another curriculum-based story. This one is about maths, weight, height and comparison. The narrator and her friend Annie go to the science centre and compare themselves and others with creatures, including a hippo, which is, they conclude, well - heavy!  For some reason I am Ruth Wong on the cover. I have no idea how (or even if) I came up with that one.


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
