A fresh twist on trust and friendship
In this rebus book, a turtle won’t swim across the river because she is afraid of the hippopotamus standing in the middle of it. She asks a bird, a grasshopper, some ants, and a possum what to do, but she still can’t find the courage to cross to the delicious reeds on the other side – until she makes a new friend. Playful art swings and loops around the page, moving the story forward.
As they did in The Bird, the Monkey, and the Snake in the Jungle, which Booklist, in a starred review, called “a splendid collaboration between artist and writer,” Kate Banks and Tomek Bogacki have created another delightful rebus book for readers and pre-readers to enjoy together.
