I see him, Miss! Hes super tall! Ill fetch him in no time at all. I gotim, Miss! I gotim, Miss! I KNEW that I could spotim, 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.
