Sharko and Hippo
Author: Elliott Kalan
Illustrator: Andrea Tsurumi
A surprising and tongue-twisty picture book farce about a shark and a hippo, with a nod to classic Marx Brothers bits, from a writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the illustrator of Accident!
When Sharko calls for a boat, Hippo pulls out a goat.
He wants a pole, but Hippo gives him a pail.
And instead of bait, a beet in a boot!
Hippo’s coat pockets seem to have everything except what Sharko asks for!
Will their fishing trip ever get off the ground?
With tongue-twisty wordplay and escalating absurdity, this is a fall-down-funny farce that will surprise and delight readers.
