Praise for the Hippo series- The Hippos are always on some roof getting up to mischief (usually eating cake or having birthday parties) … popular with the parents as well as the children. Tarrangower Times

From Hazel Edwards- ‘In 1978, our new roof leaked and 4-year-old Trevelyan thought there was a hippo friend up there, who ate cake. Now three generational families, including the Edwards, have shared the cake-eating hippo stories.’ In 2013 Hazel Edwards was awarded an OAM for services to Literature.
