Private Virtual Event

Author Elliott Kalan will be visiting High Point Academy virtually with books fulfilled by Once Upon A Time. If you would like a book signed and personalized, please order at least 48 hours in advance. 

About Sharko and HIppo: With tongue-twisty wordplay and escalating absurdity, this is a fall-down-funny farce that will surprise and delight readers--from television comedy writer Elliott Kalan and acclaimed illustrator Andrea Tsurumi.

When Sharko calls for a boat, Hippo pulls out a goat.

He wants a pole, but Hippo gives him a pail.

And instead of bait, a beet and a boot!

Hippo's coat pockets seem to have everything except what Sharko asks for!

Will their fishing trip ever get off the ground?
