Duck and Hippo Lost and Found
written by Jonathan London
Two Lions / Amazon 2017
Duck and Hippo invite their friends Turtle, Elephant, and Pig to a picnic at their favorite pond. Yippee! It’s time to dance and sing, swim and eat. Everyone brings goodies to share…except Hippo. He didn’t bring ANYTHING. So Hippo sets off into the forest to find some berries. But he is gone a long time, and Duck begins to worry that Hippo is lost. What should his friends do to find him? Join Duck and Hippo on another fun adventure!
Children are unlikely to feel any anxiety as these friends bumble along in the dark, so calm and good-hearted is the story. Friendship stories are plentiful, and outdoor adventures are not unusual, but this lively lark is a picnic basket full of fun. Kirkus Reviews
Hippo and Duck begin another adventure with just as much action as in the first series installment…A fun read-aloud for libraries where the first installment is popular, and a satisfying choice. School Library Journal
