It starts with a case of hiccups during story time at the library. And that leads to an outrageous and hilarious adventure involving a hippo, a little sister, an overturned ice cream cart, a librarian who's afraid of heights, and a stack of library books that must be returned--on time and in good condition--if the narrator is going to get her very own library card. And nothing could be more wonderful than that!

Brightly colored, energetic illustrations make the most of the slapstick humor in this rollicking readaloud.
