The Turtle and the Hippopotamus

Out of stock
In this rebus book, a hungry turtle won’t swim across the river to the delicious reeds on the other side because she is afraid of the hippopotamus sitting in the middle of the water. The turtle tries to fly, hop, and swing across like the bird, grasshopper, and possum she meets, but each attempt ends in disaster. How will she get to the other side? Full-color art.
