Description - Owen and Mzee by Isabella Hatkoff

The inspiring true story of two great friends, a baby hippo named Owen and a 130-year-old giant tortoise named Mzee. When Owen was stranded after the December 2004 tsunami, villagers in Kenya worked tirelessly to rescue him. Then, to everyone's amazement, the orphaned hippo and the elderly tortoise adopted each other. Now they are inseparable, swimming, eating, and playing together. Adorable photos emailed from friend to friend quickly made them worldwide celebrities. 'Owen and Mzee' is a heart-warming, true animal story featuring an irresistibly cute baby! Here is a joyous reminder that in times of trouble, friendship is stronger than the differences that too often pull us apart.
