The HICCUPotamus (Review)
The HICCUPotamus by Aaron Zenz is a pretty cute book and fun to read. The only problem I have with this book is that it is basically all made-up words in order to make up the rhymes. I understand the motivation behind Zenz to make a book like this. I love the story and so do my kids. But at times it was hard for my kids to follow along because so many of the words didn't make sense to them. For example, in order to create rhymes for the word "therapy" the author created the words "shareapy", "whereapy" and "nightmareapy".
In the end, though, the story is cute and pretty short. The illustrations are really great. It was enjoyable but not one we would read over and over again.
