Children will relate to this story about friendship and feelings.

Hippo and Monkey is the story of two best friends, but when little things start to bother them about each other their bond begins to bend, but will it break?

Among the bothersome issues are banana skins in the water, angry splashing, and unnecessary roaring. These are some of the bumps along the path through the jungle of life for Hippo and Monkey.

How can they find a way to accept each other for who they are when all they do is annoy each other with their bad habits?

There are many lessons in this 48-page picture book, above all: True friendship can survive anything with acceptance and understanding.

Children will delight in the illustrations with their bright colors on black backgrounds, making them stand out vividly.
