Duck and Hippo are thankful for good friends! 

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and Hippo has his heart set on having a good old-fashioned feast with Duck and their friends. Together, Duck and Hippo go shopping for food and invite Turtle, Elephant, and Pig to share the special day with them. Then they get everything ready. But while Hippo goes to bed dreaming of his good old-fashioned Thanksgiving, Duck is busy making her own plans. There’s going to be a BIG surprise—one that will remind Hippo of all he has to be thankful for. Join Duck and Hippo for a memorable celebration!

Watch the book trailer 

Hippo dreams of a good old-fashioned Thanksgiving with all of his friends, so he and Duck set out to gather their supplies and invite their friends. As Hippo gets everything ready for Thanksgiving dinner, Duck and their friends are concocting an unforgettable surprise just for Hippo?  

Duck and Hippo return for another sweet and memorable tale, this one full of joyous celebration as the charming duo celebrate Thanksgiving. London’s charming and easy to follow story takes little readers on an engaging and charming Thanksgiving journey, from the market to decorating the table, cooking the food, and celebrating with the people you care about. Joyner’s lively illustrations, full of bold Fall scenes and colors, expressive and adorable animal characters, and silly moments, warmly bring the story to life. 

At the heart of  Duck and Hippo Give Thanks is a beautiful and timely message about thankfulness, friendship, and embracing our differences.
