Hippos is packed with facts written in an accessible question-and-answer format. Special x-ray pages enable readers to see the inside of a hippo, and a deeper look into their habitat. The book features startlingly realistic illustrations and impressive photographs. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal educational text.
