I’ll fetch him in no time at all.

...THAT’S not a hippopotamus!
A class trip to the zoo descends into a chaotic hunt for the missing hippopotamus. Teacher, zookeeper and all the children join the search. The noise and drama reach a pitch, and no one thinks to listen to quiet Liam, who really might know where the hippo is hiding.
That’s Not a Hippopotamus is a deft and delightful tale, packed
with word play and madcap energy–and with a whole different story to
enjoy in the illustrations.
