Read full description of the books Sammy the Hippo:Sticky, mucky mud! Sammy the Hippo just loves to bathe in it, and rub it between his toes. But his Mum isn't so keen - until she discovers that mud is good for her too! Sammy the Hippo is one of eight new titles in the hugely successful series of small format storybooks for preschool children based on the popular TV animation series Animal Stories. Each title - based on a single TV episode - follows the amusing antics of an animal character who is struggling to overcome a particular burden in life, such as spots on the leopard, a hump on the camel, fussy eating habits of the cat and noisy neighbours of the owl. The stories are told in delightful rhyming verse, accompanied by bold colourful illustrations derived from the animation. Funny and appealing, the complete series of sixteen titles will enthral fans of the TV programme and newcomers alike, and makes a charming set for young children to collect.
