Review:

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

PRAISE FOR DAVID WALLIAMS:
“No one has any business being as talented as David Walliams. He is one of the few comic actors who is actually funny, and is now the genius writer of ridiculously over-the-top and utterly delightful children’s books…” – Spectator

“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

About the Author:

Since his debut children’s book published in 2008, David Walliams has taken the literary world by storm and is the biggest British children’s author to debut this century. His most recent novel, AWFUL AUNTIE, was published in September 2014 and was the overall bestselling book in the UK for a sensational six weeks. Selling over half a million copies in just three months, it became the biggest selling book of 2014. His previous novel, DEMON DENTIST, sold more than half a million copies in less than a year, and the paperbacks of his other titles continue to dominate the UK charts. David’s books have been translated into 40+ languages and have sold over 6 million copies in the UK alone. His books have also achieved unprecedented critical acclaim – RATBURGER, DEMON DENTIST and AWFUL AUNTIE, have all won the National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year.

Tony Ross was born in London in 1938. His first book was published in 1972, and since then Tony has written over 100 books and illustrated over 2000, including the bestselling Horrid Henry series. Two of his creations, Towser and The Little Princess, have been turned into TV series. Tony lives in Wales.

Miranda Hart’s excursion to the Edinburgh Festival in 1994 began her journey to becoming one of the UK’s top comedians. After ten years on the stand-up and sketch club circuit, she made her mark appearing in Smack the Pony, Absolutely Fabulous, Hyperdrive and Not Going Out, but it was when her sitcom Miranda hit screens in 2009, that her popularity rocketed. She has since been crowned the Queen of Comedy at the British Comedy Awards as well as winning three RTS Awards for Best Comedy Performance.

Rob was born in Swansea and studied drama at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. He commenced his professional life as a radio and television presenter for BBC Wales.
Rob first came to the public's attention in 2000 with the shows Marion and Geoff and Human Remains, winning British Comedy Awards for both. Since then his comedy credits have included I'm Alan Partridge, Little Britain, Live At The Apollo, Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive, QI, The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year, Have I Got News For You, Gavin and Stacey, Rob Brydon's Identity Crisis, as well as hosting the successful panel show Would I Lie To You? He has also appeared in the following drama productions on television and film: Oliver Twist, Heroes and Villains: Napoleon, The Way We Live Now, Murder In Mind, Kenneth Tynan: In Praise of Hardcore, Marple, 24 Hour Party People, A Cock and Bull Story, The Best of Men, Gangsta Granny, The Trip and The Trip to Italy, alongside Steve Coogan.
Rob is the voice of many animated characters in major films including The Legend of Treasure Island, Robbie The Reindeer, The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child, and Room on the Broom.
