Personal Penguin

Hippo likes penguins, as many hippos do. But he's never had one offer to be his own personal penguin. After enjoying a nice concert at the Kennedy Center, he found this book in the gift shop:

It's the story of an affectionate penguin who is devoted to being companions with its beloved hippo.
Now, lots of other penguins seem to do fine
In the universe of nothing but ice.
But if I could be yours, and you could be mine,
Our cozy little world would be twice as nice.
I want to be Your Personal Penguin.

There's even a song by Monkee Davy Jones to go along!

A Monkee, a hippo, and a penguin... It sounds like the start of a joke or a party!

I don't have my own Personal Penguin, but I do have a Friendly Duck to hang out with! Everyone should have a friendly little pal like the Penguin and the Hippo. I'm glad I do.
