Tamo is a young hippopotamus. Every morning he lists all the things he can’t do, as well as the things he can do. And what he does best is hatch eggs! With this special talent, he soon finds himself part of a noisy, diverse, and enormous family. A story about kindness and caring for others, in which difference is seen as a gift, and family is seen as a place of joyful sharing and mutual support.The delicacy of a hippopotamus that hatches the eggs with dedication and the candor of a goodness of soul at least as big as he is, will conquer your heartsIllustrated and written by Daniela Iride Murgia..
