Mummy is having a baby . . .  I've got a daddy and a big brother, but we haven't had a baby before. So I told my hippopotamus who lives on the roof and eats cake. He knows everything about babies.'

Sometimes there can be mixed or confused feelings about a new baby in the family. With the help of the Hippo, the baby is welcomed and embraced. This book is often given as a gift to the existing child in a family expecting a baby.
