From the Editor

Who can resist a springtime romp through the rain with a best friend? As a child, I never could! And when Duck visits her best friend, with her bright-yellow polka-dotted umbrella in tow, Hippo can’t resist either.

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.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“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

“Playful type and wordplay add to the amusement. 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

5.0 out of 5 stars My 4-yr-old loved it.
By Tammy on February 1, 2017
I always get excited when I see that my Kindle First selections include a children's book option because I know it's going to get read right away and most likely often. When I saw that it was by the same author as the Froggy series, I knew it was a winner. My four year old is super active and books are the only thing she will sit still for. So she was happy to take a break from playing this morning for a quick new story and she enjoyed this one.

This is a cute story about friendship, teamwork, compromise, adventure, and trial and error. It has great illustrations and is an easy, fun read. We of course had to give each character an accent...Hippo has a deep slow voice kind of like Eeyore and Duck has a high pitch, annoying, slightly nasal voice. My little one said her very favorite part was when Duck flew away because that would be fun to do. She immediately asked to read it again and what happened next...the telltale signs that a children's book has done its job well. I hope to see more adventures from Hippo and Duck.

I downloaded on the Kindle for iPad app onto my iPad Air and it was well formatted. I do suggest reading with your iPad in the portrait position rather than the landscape position simply because you get a bigger page that fills the entire screen. Also, FYI, the print is nicely sized but you can double tap on the words for bigger letters. I will include a few screen shots for reference.
