Book Description

From America’s bestselling storyteller Danielle Steel comes a heartwarming story about acceptance.

There are many things that are green. Grass, leaves, four-leaf clovers, lettuce. But not hippos. Hippos are supposed to be gray.

Unfortunately for Greenie— a big, bright green hippo—everyone at the circus thinks he’s just too different. So Greenie sets out on a journey to fit in and winds up in New York City. Just when it seems as though Greenie will never find a true friend, a boy named Charlie comes into his life. Will Charlie and Greenie become friends?
