The cover artwork is wonderful and hilarious, as you'll see throughout this book. Unfortunately, the cover itself could have used a professional designer's touch. The title is small, the font is boring, and it just doesn't pop at all.
Fortunately, there's an awful lot that I DO like about this book.
The artwork is fantastic. It's as adorable and hilarious as the story itself. Harry is just too stinkin' cute, and I got a kick out of all the dancing animals throughout the book.
The layout leaves a lot to be desired, but again, nothing that couldn't be remedied by a designer's touch. The green background is a bit harsh, and the art/text are oddly off-center on the pages.
I'm a sucker for a cute animal story, so this one had me right away. The title is great, the concept is adorable, and both my husband and I had a good laugh at this cute little hippo who just wants to dance.
For after all, hippos don't dance, do they?
I think a little editing could have done a lot to fine-tune this story though. There's nothing seriously wrong, but a bit of tightening up would have made for a more fluid read. Sentences tend to be a bit bulky in spots, and there are a few odd tense changes mid-paragraph.
