Doris the Hippo doesn't think she has a "beach-ready body" and spends her days at the seaside hiding herself and dealing with a swimming costume that sticks... well... just where it shouldn't! Then she meets a mermaid who explains to her that bravery and courage don't come from how you look but from who you are and what you do.


A poetic story for children on the importance of body acceptance.


Written by Laura Storey and illustrated by Melissa Muldoon, this is a gorgeous read.
