Sally insists there is a hippo in the yard, but her mother doesn’t believe her. After feeding it some lettuce, she notices a hungry tiger in the tree. While her family continues to ignore her, Sally is soon feeding the tiger, as well as some zebras and koalas. An emergency phone call confirms Sally’s words. The zoo animals have escaped!

Any child who is frustrated at the lack of attention he’s getting from his parents will be pleased when Sally is finally proved right. A Hippo in Our Yard will have kids giggling as they read it over and over again.
