Duck and Hippo in the Rainstorm

written by Jonathan London

Two Lions / Amazon 2017

Duck and Hippo may be completely different, but they are best friends. When playful Duck invites careful Hippo to go for a walk in the rain, they have trouble sharing Duck’s umbrella. But Duck and Hippo won’t let that stop them. Soon they are puddle-jumping and sailing down the river!

Until…WHOOOSH! A terrible wind sends the umbrella flying up, up, up into the air, with one friend holding on. What will Duck and Hippo do now?


A sweet story of friendship between a proper hippo and a vivacious duck...This unlikely duo show that friendship comes in all shapes and sizes and pals are there for each other through thick and thin. Sure to be a storytime staple. School Library Journal
