"Hilda must be dancing!"

Hilda Hippo loves to dance! But there's just one problem. When Hilda dances, it sounds like this:

Ka-bump! Ka-bump!

Crash! Crash! Crash!

Thumpity-bump!

Thumpity-bump!

Boom!

Bang!

Bash!

The other animals beg her to find a quieter hobby. Knitting? Singing?

For Hilda, nothing else will do. What could possible be as fun as dancing?



About the Author
Karma Wilson's first poem was published at the tender age of six. The poem was ironically titled, "I Don't Wanna Write a Poem!" Growing up, she had no desire to write. But Providence had different plans, and now Karma writes poems for a living when she's not busy being a wife and raising three kids. Karma is the bestselling author of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More, as well as If I Were a Mouse, Give Thanks to the Lord, and I Will Rejoice.

Suzanne Watts was a very naughty monkey when she was little. Once she jumped from a tree but was suspended in midair when her dress caught on a branch! Now she prefers to draw monkeys instead of acting like one. Her mischievous animals also appear in bear hugs and hilda must be dancing. Suzanne Watts lives on the Cornish coast of England.
