Look, There’s a Hippopotamus in the Playground Eating Cake

Synopsis

Starting school can be scary, but nothing is impossible when you have a hippopotamus who lives on your roof, and eats cake! So, a little girl takes her hippopotamus along to school, and together they face those first-day-at-school experiences, meeting the teacher, eating lunch on your own and making new friends.
