In the wake of the devastating 2004 tsunami, a baby hippo was left homeless. But, rescued by villagers, Owen the hippo found a new home in a Kenyan wildlife sanctuary. There he made a friend – Mzee, a 130-year-old giant tortoise. Although the two never would have been friendly in nature, readers can see heartwarming and adorable pictures that prove truth is more amazing than fiction. The story is told by 6-year-old Isabelle Hatkoff and her dad, and won the 2007 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award. Launch date: February 2006.
