The Little Hippo

A Childrens Book Inspired by Egyptian Art

By Graldine Elschner

Early Egyptian civilization and art have long been a source of curiosity and fascination for children. In this enchanting book, a young boy encounters a little hippo and together they live out their days along the banks of the Nile. After many years the hippo finds himself in a strange world populated with deserts, cities, forests, and finally a museum where he is reunited with his loved ones. Through this simple, moving, and beautifully illustrated story, young readers will discover how and why the hippopotamus was such an important figure in the ancient world.
