Elliott Kalan Virtual Event
Private Virtual Event
Author Elliott Kalan will be visiting virtually with books fulfilled by Once Upon A Time. If you would like a book signed and personalized, please order below.
About Sharko and HIppo: With tongue-twisty wordplay and escalating absurdity, this is a fall-down-funny farce that will surprise and delight readers--from television comedy writer Elliott Kalan and acclaimed illustrator Andrea Tsurumi.
When Sharko calls for a boat, Hippo pulls out a goat.
He wants a pole, but Hippo gives him a pail.
And instead of bait, a beet and a boot!
Hippo's coat pockets seem to have everything except what Sharko asks for!
Will their fishing trip ever get off the ground?

I am unable to put into words how much I loved this book. Each of Sandhya's pervious books are wonderful (When Dimple Met Rishi and From Twinkle, With Love). I read this book all in one night and was so happy with it that I sat down the next morning to write down my thoughts but I felt so intimidated by how much joy this book brought me. Strange to belive, but I just don't think my words would be able to describe to you the sweet happiness, quiet power, and gentle love in this story. All I can tell you is that this book will leave you grinning from ear-to-ear.
