Michael Moss's jazzy music highlights the humor in this read-along featuring two of the most famous friends in children's literature, hippos George and Martha. The five stories playfully deliver important life lessons. George learns honesty when Martha catches him pouring pea soup into his loafers rather than hurt her feelings by not eating it. George learns about respect when Martha clouts him with her bathtub when he peeks in on her. The characterizations by George Loeb make the hippo pair seem even more human. A bouncy sound signals the page-turns, adding to the fun. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
