Starting school can be scary, but nothing is impossible when you have a hippopotamus who lives on your roof, and eats cake! So, a little girl takes her hippopotamus along to school, and together they face those first-day-at-school experiences, meeting the teacher, eating lunch on your own and making new friends.

About The Author

Hazel Edwards (born 1945) is an Australian author who has written 200 books, including the classic children's book, There's a Hippopotamus on our Roof Eating Cake, which is approaching its 30th anniversary and a short film is in production with Pocket Bonfire Productions. Since its publication in 1981, the age-less Hippopotamus on the roof has been reprinted annually, evolved into a series of six picture books and inspired a junior chapter book, classroom play scripts, stage production and a short movie. The Hippopotamus books have also been translated into Braille and Auslan signing for the hearing impaired and were presented as an official Australian Government gift to the children of Princess Mary of Denmark.
