The Little Hippo : A Children's Book Inspired by Egyptian Art Hardback

Illustrated by Anja Klauss

Part of the Children's Books Inspired by Famous Artworks series

Hardback

Description

To the ancient Egyptians, the hippopotamus was one of the most dangerous animals in their world.

The huge creatures were a hazard for small fishing boats and other river craft.

But in this delightful story, a young boy befriends a little hippo and together they live out their days along the banks of the Nile.

After many years, when the boy's life comes to an end, the hippo finds himself in a strange world populated with deserts, cities, forests and finally a museum where he is reunited with his friends.

Early Egyptian civilization has long been a source of curiosity and fascination for children.

Through this simple, moving, and beautifully illustrated story young readers will discover how and why the hippopotamus was such an important figure in that ancient world.
