Reviews

"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
