Award-winning Karma Wilson, author of Bear Snores On, has created the delightful Hilda Hippo-a hippo who loves to dance despite all the noise she makes while doing so. It's just that the Ka-bump! Ka-bump! Crash! Crash! Crash! noises disturb her jungle friends. Maybe Hilda could take up knitting? But knitting doesn't quite suit the would-be ballerina. Perhaps she and her friends can find some sort of compromise!
