That's Not a Hippopotamus

By Juliette MacIver
Illustrated by Sarah Davis

A deft and delightful tale, packed with word play and madcap energy

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.

  • Award-winning and popular author and illustrator pair
  • Perfectly pitched humour and wordplay
  • Children will love spotting the hippo hiding in all the pictures and identify with sweet Liam, the quiet boy no one listens to
