Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
It was a hot summer day and grumpy Bear was looking for trouble. She jumped into the pond and claimed it as her own. Since all the animals used the pond, they were surprised by Bear's statement. Frog, who used the pond more than the other animals, defied Bear. Jumping in her face, Frog croaked that the pond was his. After that, Bear began to hiccup and no one could find Frog. Each animal gave Bear ideas on how to get rid of the hiccups: hold your breath, drink lots of water, stand on your head. Nothing seemed to work, however, until Bear sneezed. Out popped Frog. Bear went off to a branch of a tree and told everyone that the breeze belonged to her. Frog returned to the pond, and in perhaps a quieter voice, claimed the pond for himself. Beginning readers will enjoy this humorous tale in which stubbornness meets selfishness. The cartoon-style illustrations give clues to the text. The sentences are short but descriptive.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2A beginning chapter book that misses the mark. On the hottest day of the summer, Bear goes to the pond and claims it as his own. Frog feels the same way and when he too declares, "Mine," his friends fear for his safety. Bear opens her mouth wide and Frog suddenly disappears. When the other animals ask about Frog, Bear only replies, "Hiccup." Several creatures offer remedies, but Bear's hiccups are finally cured when an impatient young turtle bites her on the nose. Frog pops out whole, the hiccups disappear, and an uneasy peace is restored at the pond. The language is accessible; there is just the right amount of repetition of words and ideas without begin monotonous. Picture clues will also help young readers along. Close-up pen-and-ink watercolor illustrations adequately present the pond and forest animals. Unfortunately, there is a general lack of humor in both the art and text, making the events more humdrum than exciting. Once the bear gets the hiccups, things perk up but by then readers may have lost interest because of the book's slow start. Turtle is the only winner here.Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
