Item description for A Hippo's Tale by Lena Landstrom...
Overview Mrs. Hippopotamus loves the solitude of her little beach at the river's edge, but when a monkey shows up to disturb her solitude, she comes up with a solution to get some peace and quiet that it turns out, all the hippos like.
Deep in the middle of Africa, at the river's edge where the hippos live, life is pleasant. The big hippos like to relax at the beach, while the little hippos love diving. Mrs. Hippopotamus enjoys having quiet time all to herself, especially when bathing. She even has her beach, where she takes a bath in peace. But then a monkey shows up and disturbs her solitude. What is Mrs. Hippopotamus to do? She comes up with a fantastic solution, one, as it turns out, that all the hippos like.
With her warm, winsome ink-and-watercolor pictures and simple text, Lena Landström has once again created a charming tale about the pleasure of finding time alone.
