by Kate Banks & illustrated by Tomek Bogacki. The creators of The Bird, the Monkey and the Snake in the Jungle (1999) offer another engaging animal tale told with rebuses, this one featuring a small turtle trying to find a way to cross a river without swimming past a huge blue hippo.

The Hippopotamus and Crocodile Hunt is an oil painting on canvas by Peter Paul Rubens (Flemish, 1577–1640). It was commissioned in 1615 to decorate Schleißheim Palace, along with three other works depicting lion, wolf, and boar hunts. The cycle of paintings were looted from the palace during the Napoleonic Wars. Only the Hippopotamus and Crocodile Hunt was returned to Munich, at which time it was added to the collection that is now the Alte Pinakothek.
