The Lovereading4Kids comment

This very imaginative picture book comes back into print nearly 30 years after it was first published. Standing the test of time, it will delight a whole new generation of children. It's a perfect story to share with children, who will understand the thrill of having a hippopotamus on the roof, especially one who does everything the child wants to do!

Synopsis

There's a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake by Hazel Edwards

The imaginary Hippo can do what he likes on the roof. In fact, he does all the things a little girl wishes she could, but is not allowed. When she takes a bath, the hippo takes a shower; when she goes to bed, the hippo watches television on the roof. And when the repair men come to fix the roof, the hippo conveniently disappears, returning of course to eat a very large piece of cake.
