Children certainly won’t get the baby blues when they hear the tale of a little blue hippo and his adventures at the seaside.

‘Baby Blue Hippo’ is a new book by Boston-area author and retired nanny Ida Pearson - who took part in a book signing session at Johnsons Garden Centre on the weekend. The story follows the hippo and his parents on a day out at the seaside where things do not turn out like Baby Blue Hippo expected.

Ida describes the book as ‘a good read for the younger children’ and ‘suitable for a bedtime story or children to read for themselves’.
The book is priced £3.99 and available to buy at Johnsons, along with other book stores and on the internet.
