This story of an intrepid class on a safari field trip is full of enthusiastic students, a slightly frazzled teacher, and a great rhyming scheme as the class seeks out the hippopotamus that seems to be missing. Sharp eyes will see the hippo first.

A missing hippopotamus? Only Liam sees where this big guy is hiding. Children will enjoy find the hippo in this adventurous story!

Great picture book for children that has fabulous illustrations and a cute story. Lots of nice touches have been added such as the hippopotamus shown as hiding from the children on some pages and the teacher losing various important papers (safety procedures, emergency contacts, etc.) throughout the field trip. The class reflects ethnic diversity and the children's faces are very expressive with the illustrations also conveying movement very well.
