Product Description

6-8 years girls and boys will chuckle reading about the adventures and misadventures of a real African hippopotamus that, one day, at noon, decided to migrate south: “The moon sees all from way up high, I wish to also see the world go by." It took Hubert many years to travel 1 600km south, along the South African coast. Along the way Hubert made many friends and enemies as he was a friendly hippo but with a rather large appetite and he didn’t quite followed the human rules. Nobody knows why Hubert migrated, but we do know that he was happy when he reached his final destination and that only after his death was discovered that he was, actually, a girl.

Huberta the Hippo is based on the true story of an African hippopotamus that travelled 1 600 km (1, 000 miles) along the coast of South Africa. Huberta left her waterhole in the St. Lucia Estuary in Zululand (now KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa) and set off on a 1,600 kilometres (1,000 mi) journey along south, the Eastern Cape. This journey took her three years, between November 1928 and March 1931.

In ancient times hippos were found in many areas around the world such as Europe, India and even the Nile delta. Nowadays hippos are only found in the sub-Saharan Africa.
