Duck and Hippo in the Rainstorm is as much a rainy-day adventure as it is a celebration of the differences between the two friends. Duck may be small, and Hippo may be large, but together they can take on anything. When the windy weather leads the two friends to become separated, their worry feels genuine. A gentle chase ensues. But Duck and Hippo never give up on each other, just as the best of friends never do, and readers are rewarded with their safe return home.
Duck and Hippo in the Rainstorm is the perfect book for curling up with your little one on a rainy day or any other time. With plenty of fun sound words, appealing artwork, and a dose of humor and adventure, bestselling author Jonathan London and illustrator Andrew Joyner have created an endearing pair in Duck and Hippo. I hope you and your child will fall in love with them, as I have, and will want to join them on all their adventures.
