When a little kitten named Candy strikes up a very big friendship with a hippo named Veronica, it is just the start of hippopotamus-sized problems for Farmer Applegreen and Farmer Pumpkin. Now you might consider this friendship a strange match indeed, but true friends pay little attention to the look of things. Strange, though, are the merry mix-ups between the farm on the hill and the farm in the valley—on Mrs. Applegreen's birthday.
