£6.99

The Hippo at the End of the Hall’ lives in the Gee Museum about which Ben is unaware until receiving a bee-mail inviting him to ‘come now or never‘. The stuffed hippo,  shrew, chameleon and owl he meets remind him of a previous visit with his father, when he imagined the creatures spoke to him.

Overhearing a different conversation, Ben realises that the Gee Museum is in danger. How is he connected to this topsy-turvy folly? Why are his actions so important to its future?

The Hippo at the End of the Hall’ is a glorious fantastical adventure story. There’s a whiff of Victorian adventuring,  Lewis Carroll open-ended curiosity and a hearty dose of goody versus baddy.’The Hippo at the End of the Hall’ is truly satisfying reading.
