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?

Finch's creation story of legendary gentleman detective Charles Lenox is the perfect book for Agatha Christie, Donna Leon and Louise Penny fans as the atmosphere is thick as clotted cream and with indelible characters that will become more comfortable as comfy slippers! Standout sequel to be read either before or after Finch's other Lennox books. Not to be mistaken for a cozy, but still one to enjoy with a good Earl Grey and scones. - Maureen
