Danny the potbellied hippopotamus lived happily in his swampy marsh. On having his teeth cleaned in normal swamp fashion, Danny overhears a worrying conversation that sends him hurrying to find a dentist. And when Danny returns to the marshes, fully fitted with braces, he is the envy of one particular reptile whose gleaming whites lead to a disastrous fate for a city dentist.Yann and Gwendal Le Bec are brothers from Brittany, France. They launched their website News of the Times in 2012, where they illustrate international news. Danny is their first collaborative children's book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is much to enjoy in the easy lines and retro tone of the illustrations. Simple forms and bright colors pop off the page, lending the entire enterprise a jaunty, joyful feel.-Kirkus Reviews Danny is gloriously and devilishly funny with sophisticated and playful illustrations...This book is an awesome book to read with children, adolescents, and other adults to get some great conversations going. It's an awesome and hilarious cautionary tale!-The Picture Book Review It's a beautiful piece of bookmaking, and that, coupled with the darkly comic conclusion, gives it an appealingly old-fashioned feel.-Booklist Yann is one of the most talented illustrators I know, his sensitive and intelligent drawings are witty and bring a smile to my face.-It's Nice That Danny is a book made for reading out loud and children are certain to be in hysterics with all the funny voices that feature within. With a few plot twists along the way, Danny is a surreal tale of the unexpected (and slightly expected), that will delight readers from beginning to end. [...] Danny's success lies in it's ability to say so much with so little, and the naive drawing style balances the wordy text beautifully.-The Illustrated Forest For a dent-o-phobe like me, this story about a tooth doctor and his comeuppance is absurdly satisfying. [...] Look for Danny. You'll smile.--Design of the Picture Book
