Illustrated by Deborah Niland
‘My daddy says there’s a hole in our roof. I know why there’s a hole. There’s a hippopotamus on our roof eating cake.’
Eating cake is not the only thing this particular hippopotamus does. This hippopotamus gets to do lots of fun things.
The main character has a wonderful imagination and the story is accompanied by simple and appealing illustrations. This is a truly fun story that has withstood the test of time and is still being published 30 years on.
