Owen And Mzee
Owen and Mzee
This is a little story about BIG LOVE. It's based on the true story of Owen and Mzee, a baby hippopotamus and an old tortoise. After the 2005 Tsunami, Owen, the baby hippo was orphaned. Wildlife rangers rescued him and brought him to the LaFarge Park in Mombasa, Kenya. There, Owen immediately adopted Mzee as his surrogate mother. Told in brilliant color illustrations, it's a wonderful tale about the resilience of love and life. Both children and adults will love this story as it warms the heart, page by page.
