Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Part of the "Bea and HaHa" series. Bea is a blue hippo and in this board book she is playing her piano—"plonk, plonk, plonk!" Her ferret friend HaHa wants her to build a block tower with him, but Bea just keeps playing the piano and she continues to ignore all of her friend's suggestions until he tells here that she is making too much noise. Of course Bea does not agree; to her the noise is music. The final scene is amusing with each demonstrating his or her musical skills. Friends can always find a way to play together.
School Library Journal
PreS-The first book brings to life the frustrations of a small green ferret whose large blue hippo friend is too busy "plonking" the piano to play with him. Toddlers are sure to empathize with HaHa when Bea refuses to be enticed away with offers of toys and games. The clear, colorful cartoon illustrations do an excellent job of telling the story and conveying strong emotion. This clever book incorporates themes of problem solving, friendship, and cooperation. The emotional component is comparable to that in David Shannon's No, David! (Scholastic, 1998). In the second title, Bea climbs "up, up, up" a ladder without explanation. HaHa's attempts to get her to come down are in vain until he announces, "I'm going to go eat some yogurt," and she responds with a cry for help. While toddlers may empathize with the feeling of being ignored, HaHa's attempt at reverse psychology will most likely pass them by. This book is a curious mix of sophisticated emotions and the concept of up and down. Preschoolers will do better with Sandra Boynton's Opposites (S & S, 1982) and, for dealing with basic emotional quandaries, Pat Hutchins's Titch (S & S, 1971) or Mo Willems's Knuffle Bunny (Hyperion, 2004).-Tamara E.
