Danny the potbellied hippopotamus lived happily in his swampy marsh. On having his teeth cleaned in normal swamp fashion, Danny overhears a worrying conversation that sends him hurrying to find a dentist. And when Danny returns to the marshes, fully fitted with braces, he is the envy of one particular reptile whose gleaming whites lead to a disastrous fate for a city dentist.
This book was just too cute. It portrays the importance of good dental hygiene as well as regularly visiting a dentist in a way that a child can understand it. It would be the perfect story to tell at bedtime or any other time that a child might be interested in hearing a story. The illustrations in the book are, for lack of a better term, ‘super cute.’ I really quite enjoyed this book, and I am sure many others would too. I give it a 5/5 stars.
