From "Song for a Giraffe"

Hippo from

I have always enjoyed painting African animals. This hippo is from one of the earliest books I illustrated. The story is lovely and speaks of friendship and trust.  It is a wonderful way to show children and adults that although we are different and have some shortcomings, we are all wonderful individuals in our own way.
