This classic counting story was the first Sandra Boynton book ever published and is now being rereleased in hardcover to celebrate its 45th anniversary!

The story begins quite simply, with no hint of the chaos ahead:

One hippo, all alone, calls two hippos on the phone…

Exuberant hippopotamus guests show up in ever-increasing numbers, until an all-night party is inevitable. Completely redrawn, this snazzy new edition honors the enduring power of a deft and nuanced depiction of the Hippo Condition.

About the Author

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over sixty children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 70 million of her books have been sold, “mostly to friends and family,” she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children’s music. Three of her six albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold) and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has been certified Platinum (over 1 million copies sold). Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning “One Shoe Blues” starring B.B. King, “Alligator Stroll” starring Josh Turner, and “Tyrannosaurus Funk” (animated) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.
