9780979965340: The Hippo That Flew

Wilbur the hippo endlessly devotes his entire life's work trying to find a way to fly. His efforts finally pay off in a most unusual way - and forever! 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. He resolutely plows ahead, journeying forward 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, sums up this concept in 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 life lessons that will enable them to journey through life with courage, determination, and self-confidence.

About the Author:

Deftly wielding his SwordPen, Zev "Wilbur" Lewinson has created a true classic with his latest literary work for children, The Hippo That Flew. It is Zev's second release by SwordPen Publishers. A voracious reader, Zev and his "navigator" wife Sharen (yes, it was love at first flight) reside in New York, where they are being brought up by their five gorgeous hippos - ages 8 through 23 - who all flash blank expressions when asked what their father does for a living. While it's hard to say what he does to support his family - or rather, what he hasn't done - luckily for his young readers, his passion is writing.

Review:

Great deal of insight ... truly fascinating ... --Authentic Creations Literary Agency

Charming ... --Sterling Lord Literistic

Lewinson's charming fable stands as a vivid reminder to children and their parents to never give up on their dreams and passions. The dreams of one generation can well become the realities of the next. --Irving Breitowitz JD, Professor University of MD School of Law
