What can I say about this silly, yet perfectly delightful book? My boys (particularly my oldest who is 4) are obsessed. We read it all the time, so I’ll have to add it to our collection soon. Hiccupotamus is about a group of animals who dance to their own combined beat.

The words are silly and before long you’ll find yourself reading to a distinct beat. At the end, the animals wonder who to thank for starting the whole thing and are surprised when the hippopotamus jumps up announcing he’s the one to thank.

Turns out he drank a fizzy pop and his hiccups started the beat.

Summing it up: this book is hilarious and absolutely worth reading!

All the best, Abbey
