What a predicament! How did Veronica ever get lost at the top of a big city building under construction? How would she ever get down?

In the good old days Veronica lived in the forest by the hippopotamus river. When men and machines brought noise and hubbub to the river, the hippopotamus herd left. But Veronica remained to see the good new days.

The new days bring her to America, where Veronica has a bewildering adventure and it soon becomes evident that city life is just not satisfactory for a hippopotamus. Roger Duvoisin brings joyous illustrations and sprightly prose together in his third story about the unpredictable hippopotamus, Veronica.
