Poor Amos! All he wants is a tick bird to eat the pesky bugs off his back, like the other hippos have. But when Amos hires one and tells her to make herself at home, she does. Before he knows it, the little bird has built a nest on Amos's head and laid three eggs! Now he is the laughingstock of the jungle. What next? Would you believe a baby shower? And the littlest baby thinking Amos is his daddy? This perfect first novel for young readers is at once funny, touching, and heartfelt.
