Mr. H is a hippopotamus who is tired of living in captivity in the zoo and decides one day to escape and return to his native Africa. With the help of a visiting schoolgirl named Rosana, he breaks free from his cage and exits the park. Mr. H encounters zoo employees and pedestrians and even strides into a pizzeria, but no one who crosses his path seems to find it strange that a hippopotamus is freely wandering the city streets. The colorful illustrations that capture this absurd situation add brightness to this delightfully silly story.
