Tamus the Hippo
Synopsis: Tamus (a play on the word hippopotamus) is a friendly hippopotamus whose self-esteem took a blow when he got rejected by other animals due to his large size. A kind-hearted sheep Shebee befriended him when she saw him crying.
Tamus faced a test of courage one day when a hungry wolf cornered his only friend. Despite trembling with fear, he went to Shebee’s rescue and scared away the wolf. The other animals then finally saw Tamus’ true value beyond his appearance.
