VERONICA, THE VERY conspicuous hippopotamus, is happy to move to Mr. Pumpkin’s farm. There will be so many animals to gossip with! But the other animals do not return Veronica’s hearty “Good morning!” And they say nastythings about her. Her feelings hurt, Veronica hides in the barn for a whole week—the animals spy on her as she wastes away and looks morose. Feeling guilty, the animals offer gifts to cheer her up, and when she finally joins them in the barnyard, they see the biggest smile ever on Veronica’s face. First published in 1962, this sequel to Caldecott Medalist Duvosin’s Veronica captures with humor and an upbeat conclusion the real-life dynamics often faced by a new child in school.

display_description When Veronica, a large and happy hippopotamus, arrives at Mr. Pumpkin's farm, she can't wait to make friends with all the barnyard animals. But day after day they ignore her and say such unkind things that she withdraws from them and refuses to eat and becomes sick. When the barnyard animals see this, they have a change of heart and the farm becomes a very different place.
