Meet Hattie, an adorable little hippo who loves to dance, swim, play hide-and-seek, and host tea parties for her friends!

Acclaimed author Christine Loomis and award-winning illustrator Robert Neubecker have teamed up to create Hattie Hippo, a character whose cuteness is truly captivating! Four funny stories showcase Hattie at her best--just being Hattie. A perfect read-aloud for loads of fun.
