Set in large, easy-to-read letters, this is the story of Will, a young boy who is bored at school and tired of always following the rules. One day, a hippo appears in his bathtub and is eager to join him at school, filling the empty seat next to him and causing such a ruckus. This is too much for the teacher, who runs to get the principal – what will happen when they return?
