Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
With his new shoes, new pencil box and a special lunch packed in his backpack, Little Hippo is all ready for his first day in first grade--except he is a bit nervous. (He hopes that the shoes are like everyone else's and that the pencil box contains the right equipment.) Big brother Howard doesn't help matters when he warns Little Hippo to avoid mean, ugly Miss Rhinoceros--who of course turns out to be Little Hippo's teacher. She is hardly the villain, however: that role belongs to a tiger named Cynthia, who ridicules her forlorn classmate's shoes and tells him to draw a funny picture of the teacher. She then shows it to Miss Rhinoceros, whose hurt feelings are assuaged by one of Little Hippo's chocolate cupcakes, as he lets her know he understands that ``first grade is not easy.'' Without whitewashing the potential perils of a first day at school, Macdonald's warmly reassuring story is ably abetted by King's cheerful, vibrantly colored pictures. Ages 4-8. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
Little Hippo is worried about his first day of school--worried that he won't be wearing the right clothes and that he won't fit in with the other kids. He especially dreads Miss Rhinoceros because his big brother Howard says that ``she's mean and ugly and she's got big spikes.'' Miss Rhinoceros seems nice enough, though, and all goes fairly well until a classmate chides Hippo into drawing an ugly picture of the teacher. When Hippo sees her crying, he is ashamed, and offers her one of his cupcakes he's saved from lunch. ``Let's share them,'' she says, and all is forgiven and forgotten. There never seem to be enough ``entering first grade'' books and this, while not outstanding, deals with common childhood apprehensions and concerns. The watercolor illustrations are bold and bright, although the animals are a bit static, and readers may wonder why Little Hippo doesn't have a real name as do the other characters. Not a must, but an additional purchase. --Leslie Barban, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC
