About the Book: What happens when you start to think you are too big for your cosy home? Finding a new place to live isn’t easy, and sometimes we aren’t grateful with what we have until we no longer have it. Hilmy doesn’t like his home anymore. He goes for a trip searching for a new home, but this is not as easy as Hilmy thinks. He meets a lot of nice friends on his way and learns that his original home was good and better than any other. Himly finds out the hard way, with some help from his.
In this charming story, Hilmy the Hippo, learns to be grateful…the hard way! It’s a great read for young readers or a fun read-to-me book with full illustrations. This excellent book explores appreciating what we have and illustrates to the reader that the grass is not always greener on the other side.
