Read our Frequently Asked Questions

The Village Elder is Pretty Mysterious

How can I order the books?

Currently in 2015 this is not possible as the books are out-of-print.

When will the third book come out?

Sometime in 2016.

Why does it take so long to release new books?

The Village Elder is always running around somewhere in the world or running around in a +45hr full-time job, which, quite unfortunately, has nothing to do with drawing hippos.

I'm interested in Hippoville drawings. Where can I find out more?'

Please visit our sister site, Hippoville Art Prints, for more information and possible ordering of art prints.

Have you made any games? Or planning on it?

Of course! A Hippoville Adventure game is in the works! Release date... oh dear. Let's say 2017?'
