Summary, etc.: A hippopotamus with severe hiccups causes chaos until other creatures finally find the right cure.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2009 October #2
    There are times when you just can't shake the hiccups. For a purple hippopotamus, "every time he got'emus . . . / He'd fall upon his bottomus." The poor hippo startles an elephant when attempting to say "hellophant" and accidentally wraps up everyone (rhino, centipede, and elephant) in dental floss—that is the final "strawcerous." The hippo is spun, dunked in water, and tickled. The band of animals even "secured him to a buffalo / And made him huff and puffalo" into a paper bag. Finally he is cured! Relief is brief as the hippo's friends now have the hic . . . hic . . . hiccups. The conclusion of this rhyming escapade features a whimsical biographical sheet on the cast of characters ("The part of the buffalo was played by a ground squirrel named Arlo"). Zenz's colored pencils create saturated spreads of cartoon art that sometimes seem a bit two-dimensional, though his use of line complements the playful text with curves and rounded characters. The catchy rhyme will help even the worst case of hiccups. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.
