Daniel Nesquens

Daniel Nesquens, born in Zaragoza, Spain, has been a prolific author of children’s books since he started writing them in 2000. In 14 years, he has published nearly 20 books, many of which have been translated into several languages. His stories, full of whimsy and humor, hint of the magical realism defined by Spanish-speaking authors of the 20th century.

In Mister H, Nesquens’s wit and imagination are on full display as the eponymous hippopotamus talks his way out of the zoo and into the world. Readers, just like the characters in the book, will find the winsome Mister H impossible to resist.
