When Hippo left the zoo, he was ready for adventure! But is he ready for his first job? The zoo isn't what it used to be. It's run-down and falling apart. Hippo hardly ever gets any visitors. So he decides to set off for the outside with his friend Red Panda. To make it in the human world, Hippo will have to become a Hippopotamister: he'll have to act like a human, get a job, and wear a hat as a disguise. He's a good employee, whether he's a construction worker, a hair stylist, or a sous chef. But what he really needs is a job where he can be himself.

    A friendly vehicle for delivering a set of morals, Hippopotamister gives readers of all ages a chance to have some fun, explore some different career options, and learn a few things along the way. Green makes it quite clear that not everyone finds their “perfect job” on the first try, but he also shows readers that sometimes everything you need to be satisfied and helpful is waiting right there in front of you. Hippopotamister goes through a hero's journey of sorts, finding out things about his skills, interests, and abilities along the way. Readers are then treated to the actions and reactions of that journey, as Green even finds ways to deliver some humorous situations and whimsical encounters. Read Full Review
