Owen & Mzee: The Language of Friendship by Isabella Hatkoff, Craig Hatkoff and Dr. Paula Kahumbu, with photographs by Peter Greste [in Bloomsbury Review]

Owen & MzeeWritten for an older audience of grade-school children, the recent sequel to Owen & Mzee: The True Story of a Remarkable Friendship (February 2006) continues the inspiring story through fabulous photographs that follow the remarkable relationship between baby hippo Owen and grumpy old tortoise Mzee. One-and-a-half years after Owen’s harrowing rescue from the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami, the unlikely duo’s bond is stronger than ever, complete with an actual language of their own.
