Ophelia

The Schuberts have once again produced a beautiful and amusing picture book. Ophelia, an elegant hippo, hears her lover Jippo the crocodile cry out. She hurries anxiously to his rescue, telling the friends that she meets on the way that she thinks Jippo is ill. As the story rolls on, the crocodile's fate gets worse and worse, until all are convinced that Jippo has died. Word travels fast! Quick-moving, witty text. The illustrations, set in the jungle, are fresh and bright.

Reviews

"[T]he watercolor illustrations are well executed and match the tone of the story."
-School Library Journal

"The German creators of There's a Crocodile under My Bed! (2005) offer another picture book that's sure to please. ... A good choice for story hours."
-Booklist

"Ingrid and Dieter Schuberts's Ophelia is the very image of chubby cheerfulness. This resonance of images often occurs in Ophelia...The Schuberts once again demonstrate the very best of their abilities."  - NLPVF Children's Books from Holland, Spring 2009
