Review Text

In the wake of Ah-choo (p. 253, J-79), Mayer's hippo duo take to a rowboat, where she begins to hiccup and he, gleefully, to douse, smack, and scare her to a cure. The predictable spill (and splash) is followed by just as predictable a switch when, once landed, he gets the hiccups and she seizes the chance to get her own back. We can't imagine even the pictures keeping this afloat, though Mayer's gross, googly-eyed buffoons in scanty finery might amuse others. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
