Terrific Tuesday

Hiccupotamus Steve Smallman, illustrated by Ada Grey is a story full of sounds and music.  The jungle animals are having fun making sounds by the creek, turning it into a song. At the end, when the hippo says he was helping, the animals don't agree, but the hippo was the one who made the creek go bubble with his hiccups.
 The illustrations look like they are mixed media, maybe some digital, but watercolors with colored pencil and some crayon or pastels.  They are bright, cartoon style and lively.  The jungle animal characters are so sweet and fun.  
This title will be perfect for a preschool Storytime about animals, musics, and sounds.  It's just right for Toddlers to Kindergarteners.
