Author Anne Childs printed her first children’s book herself and gave copies to her family and friends with children. The book is about achieving dreams and never giving up. The positive feedback she received inspired her to distribute the book to a wider audience, thus, she released “The Animal Chorus Line: Fulfilling Your Dreams and Never Giving Up” (published by Balboa Press AU).

The picture book for children is a story in rhyme verse about a group of friends in a zoo who want to fulfill their dreams of performing on the world stage. The main character is Hannah the Hippo. All of them are very talented, cute and lovable little creatures, bringing with them individual talents to make a successful dance troupe. Will their dreams come true? Bill Wood’s illustrations bring the animals to life.

“It’s about going for your goals and dreams and never giving up. It’s all about confidence.” The author hopes that parents and children will enjoy the funny yet inspiring story of Hannah the Hippo.

An excerpt from the book:
We were on our way out – Ernie Elephant heard us pass by
‘I want to come too – I can dance – AND kick high!’
‘I do a great pirouette – I can jive and I can tap’
‘And there’s one more thing Hannah…..I can rap’
