Little Hippo loves to pretend, and today he is playing a doctor. He tries to examine Big Hippo, Very Tall Giraffe, Giant Crocodile, Elephant, and other patients. But not everyone plays the way Doctor Hippo expected. Especially not Lion. Lion does not want to play Doctor Hippo's game. When he lets out a huge roar, the little doctor races home to find that Mama Hippo's medicine is the best of all. Jonathan London's reassuring story is perfectly matched by Gilles Eduar's warm and whimsical illustrations.

"The cartoonlike illustrations are done in gouache and nicely complement the simple text. Children will relate to the feeling of being lost in a big person's world, and they will enjoy joining in to snap, sneeze, and roar with each animal that Little Hippo meets. A humorous addition for storytimes about mother-child relationships, animals, or imagination." --School Library Journal

"Brazilian illustrator (Gilles) Eduar has an expressive, clear-line style and a quirky palette (palm trees come in a variety of shades); it's a whimsical counterpoint to London's matter-of-fact prose... if the reading prescription calls for sweet and simple, especially at bedtime, this may prove... effective." --Publishers Weekly
