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 in a boot!Hippo’s coat pockets seem to have everything except what Sharko asks for!Will their fishing trip ever get off the ground?With tongue-twisty wordplay and escalating absurdity, this is a fall-down-funny farce that will surprise and delight readers.
