Booklist - 04/15/2016 Tired of their run-down city zoo, Hippo and Red Panda decide to try their luck living among humans instead. The pair score job after job, but Red Panda’s workplace deficiencies get them fired before each day is through. A narrowly avoided accident makes Hippo realize life in the city might not be for him after all, but he returns home with a fresh perspective and the necessary skills to fix the ailing zoo. This charming graphic novel offers an entertaining package of silly humor and clever illustrations while reminding readers that everyone has their strengths and friends can accomplish far more together than they can on their own. Using large-scale panels and a crisp drawing style, Green captures the absurdities of each situation with a good-natured cheer in each panel. A cheerfully bright palette and highly expressive characters bring vibrant energy to the pages, echoing the upbeat tone of the story. Entertaining and engaging, this will appeal to a wide range of young readers. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
