Let's celebrate!  How to Grow a Hippo! has been printed and is on its way to author Becky Schantz.  She will be signing and mailing out the books that had been pre-ordered.  If you did not pre-order but would like a book, it is available for on-line purchase on the Mascot Books website.  Click here for a direct link.

The hippo celebrating in the illustration above started out as a hippo
study in preparation for the book back in 2012.  He soon morphed into a birthday hippo for my hippo-loving niece and later was reincarnated as a scientist for the book.  He gets around.
