Description

In this exciting follow-up to OWEN andamp; MZEE, the New York Times bestselling story about an orphaned baby hippo named Owen and the 130-year-old giant turtle, Mzee, Craig Hatkoff explores the language of love, friendship, and nurturance that these two incredible creatures share with one another. This book traces their first year together, including their adorable playful ways and the unique "language" that they have developed.

Booklist
Starred Review
Along with assuring children that the bond between Owen and Mzee is "stronger than ever," the authors chronicle the animals' system of communication, involving nudges, nips, and even a special kind of call. (This book) duplicates some elements from the earlier book…in a way that moves beyond the pat, heartwarming aspects of the incident to ask fascinating questions about animal behavior.
