School Library Journal - 07/01/2017 PreS-Gr 1—Hippo and Duck begin another adventure with just as much action as in the first series installment. The pair have decided to celebrate the end of summer with a picnic gathering of their friends Turtle, Elephant, and Pig. Duck grabs the basket of treats and skips and dances all the way to the pond. Their animal friends have arrived and are unloading their goodies when Hippo stops the celebration because he's realized something terrible. He didn't bring anything to share with the others. Upset, he decides to head into the woods and gather the last berries of summer. Turtle, Elephant, Pig, and Duck begin to worry after Hippo is gone for a long time, and decide to look for him. This leads to a lost and found adventure with repetition that will engage children during read-alouds. The hunt ends on a sweet note, and readers will be smiling along with the characters as they finally have a moonlit picnic and party. The font and style of the words match the feelings and expressions of the cast of characters. VERDICT A fun read-aloud for libraries where the first installment is popular, and a satisfying choice for readers of Arnold Lobel's "Frog and Toad."—Meghan Oppelt, Whitehall School District, WI - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
