I see him, Miss! He’s super tall! I’ll fetch him in no time at all.
I got’im, Miss! I got’im, Miss! I KNEW that I could spot’im, Miss!
...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.
Industry Reviews
"A fantastic romp to read aloud but it would also be wonderful to share so the nuances in the illustrations can be fully appreciated. Recommended." -- Magpies (AUS)
"Buoyant fun for the very young" -- Kirkus Reviews (US)
"Kids will ask for it again and again just for the pure joy of joining in the hippo hunt... I highly, highly recommend this book." -- Storywraps (US)
