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 seventy-five children's books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 85 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.

Love this book! It’s a classic and was my favorite as a little girl. Now it’s my daughters favorite and we continue to buy for all our friends’ kids! Make sure to shake the book and exclaim “all the hippos go beserk”!

Great Book

5 out of 5 stars
iDocMom - 13 years ago
Got this book for my 20 month old son for Christmas last year, and he LOVES this book. It counts up to nine, then back down to one. Great because it only has a few words on each page, so my son doesn't get too bored with it before trying to turn to the next page. Not only do we count the hippos, we point out things in the pictures, like a balloon, cake, beast, moon, and a tree. He has also noticed that some of them are crying when some of the hippos have to leave. Very great book and I highly recommend it!
