's review

it was amazing

This was one of my favorite books as a child (I'm 38), and I've often thought about it over the years. While cleaning out my parents' house this spring, I happened upon my original copy, and was pleased to find that it was still an entertaining read. The story is nonsensical (a hippopotamus eats a teacher, and then goes on to teach class at an elementary school, wearing the teacher's pillbox hat, noless), but just the kind of thing that little ones love. I've since bought it for several children in my life, and it's still a laugh-out-loud favorite!
