New children’s storybook series

Some exciting news. Leanne and I are on the verge of setting up the website for Hickory Hippo, our first children’s storybook as a husband and wife team. Hickory Hippo will be a series of adventure stories for young readers, telling the tale of the titular Hickory, an anthropomorphic hippo who has a number of fantastical adventures with his friends. Inspirations included Carl Barks’ work on Uncle Scrooge and Alfred Bestall’s Rupert Bear books. We hope to have the website launch in March and begin taking preorders on the print edition of the first story in the series.
