Hippo Bottomless: A wonderful new book by children's author, Allyn M. Stotz
"Echo can't swim like his Hippo friends. All he does is splash, splash, splash as he sinks, sinks, sinks to the cold murky bottom.
Can some friends he meets along the way help or is he destined to spend his life sinking to the bottom, bottom, bottom.?"
This new book my children's author, Allyn Stotz, is a heartwarming story about a baby Hippo named Echo who just can't get the hang of swimming. No matter how hard he tries, he just keeps sinking to the bottom. Anxious to join all the other Hippos, Echo reaches out to his animal friends, Ribbit, Quack, and Otto, for help. The trio tries to show Echo how easy it is, but he still sinks to the bottom.
Sure he will never be able to swim like all the other Hippos, Echo is sad--but then he discovers something unique about Hippos. Want to know what that is? Then read the cutest children's picture book I have read in a long time--Hippo Bottomless. Allyn's story is delightfully engaging and the illustrations by Valerie Bouthyette add a colorful dimension that will make this one of your child's favorite books for years to come. Hippo Bottomless is available at Amazon or through Allyn at her blog.
