Summary

Written exclusively for Comic Relief 2015 by David Walliams and hilariously read by David Walliams, Miranda Hart, and Rob Brydon.
From Number One best-selling book author, David Walliams, comes this spectacularly funny story for children of three and up.
A bored queen. A birthday wish. An outrageous orang-utan. Everything's about to go bananas!
This right royal mash-up of mischief and mayhem is brilliantly brought to life by the starry collaboration of David Walliams, Miranda Hart, and Rob Brydon.
Written by David Walliams as an exclusive children's book especially for Comic Relief - David will be giving all of his proceeds from the book to the charity. HarperCollins UK will also donate all profits from the publishing of this edition to Comic Relief.

Critic reviews

"TV star David Walliams is as adept at writing for the under-fives as for older children. Pre-schoolers will roar with laughter at The First Hippo on the Moon… " - ( Daily Express)
"Part Aesop, part Spike Milligan… this is rollicking stuff. With heart and great illustrations by Tony Ross." ( Big Issue)
"No one has any business being as talented as David Walliams. He is one of the few comic actors who is actually funny, and is now the genius writer of ridiculously over-the-top and utterly delightful children's books…" ( Spectator)
"I absolutely love David Walliams's books. In a few more years they will become classics." (Sue Townsend, author of Adrian Mole)
"a new Roald Dahl" ( The Times)
