Hazel’s third published work ‘There’s a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake’, has been cherished by children and parents alike and led to the dubious honour of Hazel often being referred to as ‘the Hippo Lady’. Since its publication in 1980, it has been reprinted annually, evolved into a series of six picture books, classroom play scripts, a musical stage production and a short movie. Hazel loves creating quirky, feisty characters and thrives on writing for all ages, publishing over 200 books across a range of subjects and genres. Passionate about literacy and creativity, Hazel has mentored gifted children and held the title of Reading Ambassador for various organisations.
