Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—A scary, hairy monster with green teeth chases and frightens all of the woodland creatures. One day, he comes down with the hiccups. He tries everything, including running in circles and swinging upside down from a tree, but they won't go away. When the other animals see him sitting on a rock and crying, they develop a novel idea for curing the problem. The creature considers how kind the animals were to him, decides to mend his ways, and uses his talents more constructively. The large illustrations, done in graphite stick and watercolor paints, are lively, fresh, and expressive, giving personality to the story. The figures are set against white backgrounds with minimal detail. Any child beset by the hiccups will empathize with this not-so-scary character.—Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
