 PEACE, HIPPO! and Other Endangered Animals Too!  by Cheryl Davis Hornung

available at Amazon and CreateSpace.

"To be, or not to be. . . ." Rhino recited.

This story combines facts, a little fantasy, lots of heart, and some humor.

Rufus is a little dog on a big mission. After overhearing a discussion about the endangered species list on TV, Rufus sets out on assignment as a traveling reporter at large to interview endangered animals and to find out how he can help them.

Upon arrival in Africa, Rufus encounters Peace Hippo, who becomes his traveling companion. The unlikely pair travels to China to meet a panda and to India to meet a tiger. Then, upon their return to Africa, Rufus learns how the Massai are using their tracking skills to protect lions and how bees are helping elephants behave in Africa. And, finally, his wish to meet a rhino is fulfilled––a rhino who recites Shakespeare, "To be, or not to be. . . ."

Rufus learns the challenges facing these animals today as each one tells their personal story.

Here are some of the things Rufus discovers on his journey:

  • A hippopotamus is graceful underwater and can remain completely submerged for five to six minutes at a time! 
  • As cute as they are, even pandas can have dating problems! 
  • Tigers could probably care less about apologies! 
  • Lions have family pride! 
  • Beehives help elephants behave in Africa! 
  • Rhinos deserve more compliments! 


"PEACE HIPPO! and Other ENDANGERED ANIMALS Too!" is a story with an important message for everyone. The animals' stories, colorful photographs and charming illustrations, will engage readers of all ages.

September 2014: Emerging Business: “Heckery Dekkery Dot” Travel Postcards for Children by Meagan Meehan

Educating children can be a challenge, especially when it comes to subjects like geography which many children consider to be boring. For these reasons, educating through entertainment is becoming increasingly popular with many teachers and parents. Games, apps, and stories can all help engage children’s interest and subsequently teach them without the little ones necessarily being aware that they are learning. “Heckery Dekkery Dot Travel Game Postcards” is just such a fun learning tool.
