I never thought hippos were interesting until I read this book. Having read MAMA by Jeanette Winter and then reading this book I felt like I was left out with a lot of important details. With this book I felt like I was right there with Owen the entire time. I was scared with him, lost, confused, frustrated. To think about a baby being alone, separated from his mother, trapped in nets and surrounded by strangers in an unknown place is horrible. The primary sources (pictures) from this situation added another level of emotions. I felt like the backstory of the tortoise was interesting too, especially how he was so used to be by himself and normally not nice to others. The bond and friendship that was formed between these two is a reminder of how even after a lost their is still hope in the most unimaginable places. This was such an amazing story, after reading this to a class I would love to actually visit the sanctuary to see Owen and Mzee. ( )

Animal stories like this are extraordinary. Who would've thought a hippo and a tortoise could be so close.

This is a great book for kids and adults. Full of beautiful photos of Owen and Mzee.

This book went more in-depth and was longer than I had anticipated. For that reason I think it would be a great read aloud book. Although on the first page The second to last sentence is really confusing to me and I don't know if it is written correctly.
