Owen & Mzee
by Isabella Hatkoff, Craig Hatkoff and Dr. Paula Kahumbu;  photographs by Peter Greste

"The True Story of a Remarkable Friendship." This is about two great friends, a baby hippo named Owen and a 130-yr-old giant tortoise named Mzee (Mm-ZAY). When Owen was stranded after a tsunami, villagers worked to rescue him. Then he and Mzee adopted each other!  Now they are inseparable, doing everything together!  In times of trouble, friendship is stronger than the differences that often pull us apart.
