When I Woke up I Was a Hippopotamus

Written by: Tom MacRae and Ross Collins

First line: When I woke up, I was a hippopotamus.

Why you should read this book: In rollicking rhyme, a little boy with an active imagination recounts his day in various uncooperative incarnations--a monkey in class, a monster on the playground--getting "told off" by various authority figures for his behavior. Eventually, his parents ask him to be someone nice instead, so he decides to be himself and has a lovely evening. Fun for reading out loud, but not likely to solve any behavioral problems.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're a rock, and rocks don't have eyes or ears.
