The Hippo Who Found True Beauty

By Nevenka Alempijevic - Illustrated by Ella Rousseau - ISBN: 9781922851277

RRP: $24.95

A young hippo struggles to feel confident 
with her body image.

She realises that we all have strengths and 
learns to understand that beauty is much 
deeper than what is reflected back to us.

The Hippo Who Found True Beauty 
is the perfect story to show us all
how to celebrate our differences.

Sometimes all happiness requires is a new perspective...

*Age recommended 3 to 8 years old

"A moving story of gaining confidence and understanding what true beauty entails..." Susie, Indie Book reviewer
