Description

Harry tries and tries to get rid of his hiccups. He tries drinking a glass of water upside down, he tries putting an ice-cold key down his back, he gleefully tries eating a spoonful of sugar. But nothing works!
In this charming picture book, written by children's literature legend Jean Little and illustrated by award-winning illustrator Joe Weissmann, Harry is afflicted with a case of the hopeless hiccups. It's not until Harry has a surprise encounter with a different sort of neighbor that it seems like Harry might finally get some relief...hiccup, hiccup...

Editorial Reviews

&quotThis lively and amusing story would make a great read-aloud participation story and a vibrant addition to the bookshelf.&quot

— Canadian Children's Booknews

"Full of colourful illustrations that will delight readers of any age…The repetition of 'hiccup, hiccup,' makes this a great story to be read aloud—it is funny and entertaining."

— Resource Links

"This playful, fun, and humorous story is sure to get a laugh out of any audience…The illustrations of characters, in particular their facial expressions as they react to Harry's attempted tricks, are enough on their own to make a young audience laugh. Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine

"Young readers will enjoy the humorous lengths Harry will go to try to lose his hiccups. Weissman's illustrations, created using acrylic on board, are detailed and vibrant, and the depictions of the frog, particularly after he has gotten the hiccups, are amusing."

— School Library Journal

"Little interweaves culture and generation in a beautiful narrative dance which can be enjoyed by all ages…While the text is nourishing to the mind, the pictures are enrichment for the eyes."

— Canadian Teacher
