Why We Love This

The Unhappy Hippopotamus by Nancy Moore with pictures by Edward Leight. This is a midcentury masterpiece! Follow the story of an anthro hippo named Harriet who had an identity crisis, deciding she didn't want to be a hippo any more. After trying on various costumes and human activities she remained miserable, until finally accepting her fate and living as her true self. Published by Scott Foresman Company. Originally written in 1957, this is a 1960s edition.
