There’s a Hippopotamus on our Roof Eating Cake was first published in 1980. Since then this book series has become one of Australia's most iconic and best loved children’s publications, published throughout the world.

From Australia’s award-winning producer of children’s musical theatre Garry Ginivan (Possum Magic, My Grandma Lived in Gooligulch, Wombat Stew and The Eggscellent Adventures of Stripey the Emu Chick) HIPPO!
