This is a cute picture book done in a comic book style. The book is mostly narrated with narration blocks in the frames with some added dialogue balloons. Hippo and Red Panda discover a variety of jobs out in the "real" world but Hippo is never really satisfied. When he comes back to the zoo he sees he's learned a lot of new skills and puts them to work refurbishing the zoo and other animals. No big morals just mostly a look at career options and putting your skills to use to make a better world. Cute illustration!.
