Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

VERONICA, THE VERY conspicuous hippopotamus, is happy to move to Mr. Pumpkins farm. There will be so many animals to gossip with! But the other animals do not return Veronicas hearty “Good morning!” And they say nasty

things about her. Her feelings hurt, Veronica hides in the barn for a whole week—the animals spy on her as she wastes away and looks morose. Feeling guilty, the animals offer gifts to cheer her up, and when she finally joins them in the barnyard, they see the biggest smile ever on Veronicas face. First published in 1962, this sequel to Caldecott Medalist Duvosins Veronica captures with humor and an upbeat conclusion the real-life dynamics often faced by a new child in school.
