About the Author:

Bernard Waber was the beloved author of more than thirty books for young readers, including Courage, Ira Sleep Over, and The Mouse That Snored. With the publication of The House on East 88th Street in 1963, his Lyle the Crocodile became a mainstay of children’s literature, and the adventures of this endearing reptile were featured in numerous books. Because of their honesty, their bravery, and their tremendous heart, his stories and illustrations have been beloved by generations of children

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-"Evie and Margie-. did everything together." So begins the story of two hippos with dreams of stardom and of always being best friends. However, there is trouble in paradise when both decide to audition for the lead in Cinderella. "But deep down I'll want you to get it," they reassure one another, and they practice together. After Margie shares her secret to crying on cue (imagine sad events happening), Evie unsuccessfully tries to cry by thinking of things such as not getting her favorite kind of cupcake or her goldfish escaping its bowl. It is no surprise when Margie gets the role (with Evie cast as her understudy and as a tree that whooshes). In the end, the two learn what it means to be a star-and a best friend. The book gets to the heart of what is important to children, and the color illustrations are vintage Waber with great facial expressions and humorous, child-friendly images. Use this title with Lynn Reiser's Best Friends Think Alike (Greenwillow, 1997) and Arnold Lobel's "Frog and Toad" books (HarperCollins) for stellar storyhours on friendship.
