Titles spring forth with various interactive accoutrements. The pair that brought readers the pop-up The Wide-Mouthed Frog now introduce The Hiccuping Hippo by Keith Faulkner, illus. by Jonathan Lambert. The hero cannot shake his hiccups, despite the remedies proffered by his animal friends, each of which literally leaps off the page with their suggestions. Readers should find humor in both the text and the bright, sponge-textured characters' expressions and actions.
