But Not the Hippopotamus...

Has anyone here ever taken a look at a short little cardboard kid's book by the name of But Not the Hippopotamus? It's not good in the same sense that many of the books discussed here are, because it's more of a book for very small children who don't quite know how to read yet. Very rhyme-oriented. However, it's still a pretty funny book. I've read it in the children's section of the bookstore, and... well, I won't ruin it. Just check it out; it'll take most folks about a minute to read, and I think it's well worth it!

EDIT: Oh, and while I'm at it, hello! Big Shel Silverstein fan here, and I generally like all these supposed "children's books" as much as any other books. This community certainly seems promising.
