I see him, Miss! He's super tall! I'll fetch him in no time at all. I got'im, Miss! I got'im, Miss! I KNEW that I could spot'im, Miss! ...THAT'S not a hippopotamus! A class trip to the zoo descends into a chaotic hunt for the missing hippopotamus. Teacher, zookeeper and all the children join the search.
