Description


A hesitant hippo makes a big impact in this whimsical story about taking a chance from board book creator Sandra Boynton.

Follow along as this shy hippo observes spirited animals cavort in a bog, try on new hats, and go for a jog, all while longing to join in the fun. Building toward an exciting ending, readers will be cheering on the hippopotamus as it finds the courage to say YES to trying something new.

Then the animal pack
Comes scurrying back,
Saying, HEY! COME JOIN THE LOT OF US!
And she just doesn’t know—
Should she stay? Should she go?
But YES the hippopotamus!

About the Author


Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over sixty children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 70 million of her books have been sold, “mostly to friends and family,” she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children’s music. Three of her six albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold) and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has been certified Platinum (over 1 million copies sold). Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning “One Shoe Blues” starring B.B. King, “Alligator Stroll” starring Josh Turner, and “Tyrannosaurus Funk” (animated) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.
