Written exclusively for Comic Relief 2015 by David Walliams. From Number One bestselling picture book duo, David Walliams and Tony Ross, comes this spectacularly funny story for children of 3 and up.

A bored queen.

A birthday wish.

An outrageous orang-utan.

Everything’s about to go bananas!

Written by David Walliams as an exclusive children’s picture book especially for Comic Relief – David will be giving all of his proceeds from the book to the charity. The illustrator, Tony Ross, will waive his royalties and HarperCollins UK will also donate all profits from the publishing of the book – at least £3 from each copy sold will go to Comic Relief.

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.
