The Lovereading4Kids comment
Veronica the hippopotamus wants to be famous, she wants more than the muddy river that she calls home can offer, so sets out for the city in search of fame. She discovers that being "conspicuous" has it's own challenges... This classic by beloved children's author Roger Duvoisin was written in 1961 and is the first in a series of books about the adventurous hippo.
Veronica by Roger Duvoisin
Veronica the hippopotamus lives with her large family on the cool muddy river bank, swimming in its clear waters. But she is not happy. She dreams of becoming a conspicuous hippopotamus, even perhaps, a famous one, noticed by everyone. So she sets off, looking for adventure.
In the city she discovers that there are many confusing rules about how you can move around, where you can sleep and what you can eat, and that police stations are not made with hippopotamuses in mind. Will she find her way back to her safe, muddy home? And will her dream of becoming a conspicuous hippopotamus ever be realized?
