Most hippos love the water, but not the heroine of Shums first picture book, part of the Walt Disney Animation Studios Artist Showcase series. Holly has imagination to spare: when faced with the task of retrieving her sisters favorite toy from a tree, Holly envisions herself climbing a mountain to rescue the piglet, Piggy Wig. But when its time to go to the pool, Hollys flights of fancy arent quite so heroic. Decked out in a ruffled swimsuit, the small pink hippo asks her father a series of what-ifs as her worries play out dramatically. Concerned about the water being cold, Holly shivers on an iceberg; afraid of getting water in her eyes and ears, she recoils under a waterfall, while Daddy offers common-sense solutions (Wipe the water away if it gets in your eyes). A second chance to rescue Piggy Wig finally gets Holly in the water. Shums crisp, creamy illustrations never let Hollys worst-case scenarios get too darktheyre unlikely to provoke aquatic nervousness among readersbut the dialogue-driven text and tepid imagery dont do much to move the storys emotional needle. Ages 35. (Apr.)
