This is one of three Hippos-themed Alligator Tales board books - along with Hip Hippos and Sad, Mad, Glad Hippos - written by Jane Yolen and amusingly illustrated by Vlasta van Kampen.

One Hippo Hops is also a counting book, in which kids can add up the number of heavy hippos engaging in all kinds of activities - hopping, jumping from planes, jogging, bumping in bumper cars, trotting, gliding, marching, sliding, skipping, and (of course) following 'all the way home / and into the wallow.'

Forget counting sheep - adding up these hilarious hippos is much more fun!
