Hiccup Harry

Hiccup Harry

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- Harry's hiccups cause all kinds of problems in his first-grade classroom, and finally, indirectly, cause the fire alarm to go off. The natural humor of hiccups in school is pushed to extremes and falls flat, while the fact that Harry's teacher thinks he is hiccupping on purpose is troubling. As part of a series designed to attract ``children who are just beginning to enjoy reading,'' the text is minimal--just two to six sentences per page. There are several cartoonlike drawings on each page; they are descriptive, but hardly distinguished. It's a mediocre effort with forced humor and slight plot development that most children won't find particularly funny. Stick with the many other better written school stories. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH
