That’s Not a Hippopotamus! Picture Books
In 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.
This is a deft and delightful tale, packed with word play and madcap energy—and with a whole different story to enjoy in the illustrations.

I got ’im, Miss! I got ’im, Miss!
I KNEW that I could spot ‘im, Miss!
… THAT’S not a hippopotamus!
