Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Barney Saltzberg's Hip, Hip, Hooray Day!: A Hip & Hop Story, the follow-up to The Problem with Pumpkins: A Hip & Hop Story, the titular hippo hopes for a birthday trip to the roller rink. So when his bunny best friend presents unfun surprises like a promise to sort Hip's socks and "a coupon for tooth polish and floss" the birthday boy gets mad. (Apr.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Hip, a pink hippo with a fondness for orange overalls, has a birthday coming up, and she knows exactly what she wants. She drops not-too-subtle hints to her best friend, Hop the rabbit. On the way to the library, they take a "shortcut" past the Royal Roller Rink where Hip declares that it would be great fun "to rent roller skates someday soon." She then proceeds to draw pictures of skates, trim the hedges like a pair of skates, and even to send a message up in the air on a kite. On the morning of the big day, Hop is decorating his home for a surprise party with the help of some friends when overanxious Hip arrives, spoiling all the plans as well as The Surprise. Plan B goes into action, and Hop presents her with not-very-exciting gifts like a coupon for a tooth polish and floss. The inevitable argument ensues and both storm off to their own homes. After some coaxing by friends, Hip comes back to Hop's house where she gets an even-better-than-she-planned gift: a new pair of roller skates. Orange, green, and blue hues are predominant in the watercolor-and-ink art. The pictures are workable companions to this story, although the plot is rather predictable. A supplemental purchase to augment picture-book collections.-Roxanne Burg, Thousand Oaks Library, CA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Saltzberg follows up the success of The Problem with Pumpkins (2001) with this endearing tale of best friends and a birthday. In "Birthday Wishes," the first of three short chapters, Hip hints around to her bunny pal. Humorous pen-and-ink, watercolor, and colored-pencil vignettes show the hippo drawing pictures of roller skates, trimming the hedges in the shape of skates, and flying a kite to which she's taped a sign ("Royal Roller Rink"). "By the end of the week, Hip was sure Hop had to know how much she wanted to go to the Royal Roller Rink and rent roller skates." But in Chapter Two, "Hip, Hip, Hooray Day!," Hip is unhappy when Hop presents her with a slew of unsatisfying gifts, including a coupon for sorting her socks. Naturally, the two have a blowout. "You obviously don't know what fun is," says Hip. "I left hints all week. If you were really my best friend, you would have known how I wanted to spend my birthday." The final chapter, "Surprise," is a double whammy. When Hip sits down at the piano to play a birthday tune, the keys won't work. That's because their friend Peapod has hidden the real present-a pair of roller skates-inside. "I told you I would find a special way to wrap your present for Hip." The second in an ongoing series, Saltzberg's lighthearted portrayal of the complexities of friendship will strike a familiar chord with readers. (Picture book. 5-8)
