You Won't Shift a Hippo by Michael Catchpool
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


You won't shift a hippo if it don't want to go, and that's a fact. So how on earth are the jungle animals going to get this lazy hippo to move from the bridge? Lion, monkey and warthog try to order, push and bounce him off, but it's a little mouse who holds the key to shifting this hippo.
