There's something on the roof,' whispered Mummy in the middle of the night. Thump. Thump. Thump.

The hippo shares a seaside holiday with the family, surfing waves, collecting shells, playing beach cricket from the caravan rooftop. And what does our imaginary hippo pack in his overnight bag? Cake, of course!
