But such names can be very dangerous. Hot Hippo: Hippo was hot. He longed to live in the water like the fishes instead of on dry land. But will Ngai, the god of Everything and Everywhere give Hippo permission to do so? The Tender Tale Of Cinderella Penguin: Ciinderella Penguin loses her magic flipper as she runs to meet her midnight deadling, but all ends well when Prince Charming finds the right webbed foot.
