All I can say is everything about this picture book is cute! Cute illustrations, cute rhyme, cute premise. Who hasn’t struggled with a bout of hiccups that just wouldn’t go away? Oh how I laughed as I eagerly turned the pages to see what would happen next. What a delightful addition to any home library!
