An Excerpt from my Novel, “Hungry, Hungry Hippos” (Which will probably be a movie soon if I had to guess)
As night drew near I knew that I had to work faster to attach the device to the hippo that would enable us to control his jaws. The town was covered in marbles, but if this expedition was anything like the last one, I knew the enemy scientists would be close behind me and they would have hippos of their own. Sure, they would be different colored hippos, but they would also have the jaw control device and they would be just as hungry as my hippo. This was the future and gigantic marbles were expensive.
