My Scribbles: I downloaded this book for Little Boy and he really enjoyed it. The illustrations are gorgeous and I thought it was a cute story. Of course, Little Boy loved that it was about a hippo! And this little hippo wants to fly but he can't because . . . well, he's a hippo! As we were reading, Little Boy kept saying "too heavy" whenever Harvey couldn't fly. Each time his wings and contraptions don't work and the other animals tell him he won't be able to fly for one reason or another. Of course, Harvey eventually comes up with an ingenious solution (I won't tell you what it is . . . you'll have to get the book to see for yourself) and I really liked how it ended. Little Boy really enjoyed the colorful drawings and we took our time through this book, pointing out the different animals and waiting to see if the little hippo would ever get to fly!
