A unique, lighthearted story about a little girl and her imaginary hippo who does what he likes on the roof. He gets to have a shower instead of a bath, doesn’t get in trouble, watches TV instead of going to bed and most importantly, eats lots of cake!

Of course, this is all a reasonable explanation for the leak in the roof. theres_a_hippopotamus_on_our_roof_eating_cake
