    Inspired by a true story, this charming tale follows two friends on a trip to visit the ancient island churches of Lake Tana in Ethiopia. But what they expected to be a smooth ride across the large lake in their little boat turns into an adventure when they are stranded in the water with the hippos! Written by mother-daughter team Ellenore and Leyla Angelidis, whose love of Ethiopia and passion for books inspired them to found Open Hearts, Big Dreams, a nonprofit devoted to increasing literacy in Ethiopian indigenous languages.
