That’s right! Half of the planet is inhabited by adults (those weird hominids that have J-O-B-S and worry all the time), and the other half are inhabited by little people! And this SwordPen Classic was created for both halves! And each half will come away with their own unique message.

The Hippo That Flew is a wonderful story about a hippo who learns to follow his dreams, despite what people (or hippos), say to discourage him. Nevertheless, Wilbur plows ahead, journeying forwards to achieve his goal. How often does a 400-pound protagonist convey such love and charisma to both young and old alike? Parents will enjoy reading to their children about what hard work and success are all about. Kids are given the understanding that mere physical attributes or handicaps truly have little-to-no effect on the outcome of a goal. It is all determined by your focus and dedication to what you are pursuing!

Theodore Newton Vail, the famous industrialist, summed up this concept with the following quote: “Real difficulties can be overcome; it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.” By reading The Hippo That Flew to your child, you’re not merely reading him (or her) a great bedtime story – you’re giving them (and yourself!), life lessons that will enable them to journey through life with courage, determination, and self-confidence. Enjoy The Hippo That Flew and watch your children soar!
