Product Details


Crow’s warmhearted buddy tale is generously infused with energetic humor, and Bernatene depicts both Hippo and Bird with a perfect balance of gruff and goofy, reluctance and excitement. Against the backdrop of a teeming African landscape, and while flamingos, zebras, a rhino, elephant, antelope, and giraffe look on, author and artist show how frenemies become BFFs. What’s not to love about that?” —Booklist

“This humorous tale of two unlikely companions is an entertaining discussion starter for children about how (and how not) to make friends.” —School Library Journal

“Scenes of Hippo submerged underwater, frolicking idyllically in the grass, and wailing in terror in the storm steal the show. Though unlikely-friendship tales are a dime a dozen, this humorous, fun-filled take is well worth a look.” —Kirkus
