I Dreamed About a Hippopotamus in a Lipstick Factory
Join eight year old Nicoletta and her most unusual friend Deloris in this heartwarming story of friendship, coping with change, finding value in your own unique gifts and talents, overcoming challenges, and realizing that you don’t have to be like everyone else to be special.
“Nicoletta, it may not seem so at the time, but life has a way of presenting you with many challenges. Embrace them instead of fearing them. They have been put in your way to teach you something and help you grow.” - Deloris
"The notion of animals coming together is a nice metaphor and Vazan’s (Laughing IS Conceivable, 2015) full-color and monochrome illustrations playfully complement the narrative. Nicoletta is a likable character, and her fears will be relevant for many children. [...] The main text of the book uses Dyslexie typeface, specifically created to be easier for dyslexics to read.
A creative take on problem-solving that will encourage young readers." - Kirkus Reviews
