One day the hippo was just walking along, minding its own business.
And then he heard something falling out of the air.
And when he saw the thing that dropped, he stopped. It was a package. He ran with it to his house.
He picked the package up and put it on his little rock. And he thought of what it might be.
Then he opened it and discovered it was a baby hippo that was very ugly.
The baby hippo – that was very ugly – sat up and danced. The big hippo was confused.
The baby hippo wanted to play and the big hippo did not.
The hippo was wondering if the baby hippo would change, and it did. It had snaky eyes, very big ears, and sharp teeth.
And then the baby turned into a very scar monster. The big hippo realized it was very little and the baby was very big.
And so the big hippo ran so far…about three miles.
When he stopped running, he saw another big monster.
