Description
This story is about a Hippo named Hanley who embarks on a life changing journey. Hanley has always been the hippest in Hippo Town— but when he ventures outside town he finds he may not be the hippest around. Wise words from a family member make Hanley realize that he was being callous to those around him, and that instead of being hip he could just be himself. Hanley learns that being hip is not the most important thing in the world. He discovers that he doesn't need to worry about what other people think about him as long as he's himself.
About the author
Some may know me as musician Dre Skuffs, others may know me simply as Andre'. Being an experienced song writer, I decided to challenge myself by using my writing skills to make fun stories that teach children import values. Having children of my own was the inspiration. Creating stories with the purpose of teaching is very important to me. Being a black author, I believe my perspective is needed in my community and, others like mine, around the world.
