I saw two hippopotami,
when they were peeking water-high.
One hippo seemed a friendly guy,
but not for very long!

The poems in this book tell stories of animals and nature, from two sweaty hippos, a smiling lizard and some creepy crawlers to a few tricky dandelions. At the end of each poem, find out more in an interview with a key character or a list of fascinating facts.
CM Magazine - March 1, 2007
"A terrific book for kids...funny and informative—great to read aloud in a classroom setting. Highly recommended."
