WORD Loves John Patrick Green

    We love Brooklyn-based author/ artist John Patrick Green's adorable children's book Hippopotamister.  To make it in the human world, Hippo will have to become a Hippopotamister: he'll have to act like a human, get a job, and wear a hat as a disguise. He's a good employee, whether he's a construction worker, a hair stylist, or a sous chef. But what he really needs is a job where he can be himself.

    To order a signed copy of Hippopotamister please note "Signed Copy Request" (just the author's signature) in the comments field during checkout! To request a personalized inscription add the recipient's name as well. 

    Books shipped via UPS Ground and USPS Priority Mail can be expected 2-3 business days after shipping; books shipped via media mail cannot be guaranteed by a certain date but tend to arrive 1-2 weeks after shipping, often sooner.

    The zoo isn't what it used to be. It's run down, and Hippo hardly ever gets any visitors. So he decides to set off for the outside with his friend Red Panda. To make it in the human world, Hippo will have to become a Hippopotamister: he'll have to act like a human, get a job, and wear a hat as a disguise. He's a good employee, whether he's a construction worker, a hair stylist, or a sous chef.
