Samuel is a small boy (or so he thinks). One day he wakes up to find himself transformed into a hippopotamus. Just like that! His feet are so big that no longer fit into the shoes. The teeth... wow... long, sharp, incredibly scary. And, yet, his parents don’t seem to notice anything unusual. But how can he show up at school in such manner?
