Summary

“In this cute successor to A Boy and His Bunny, Bryan and Murphy answer the ageless question of how does a girl cope with a gator in her hair.” —Kirkus Reviews 
 
Claire—the sister of the “boy who one day woke up with a bunny on his head”—discovers that she too has a strange new condition: When she looks in the mirror, there is a gator in her hair! What is she to do? Panic? Run to Mother? Or, like her brother, learn to enjoy her new friend? With endearing characters and simple, chuckle-worthy rhyme schemes, Sean Bryan and Tom Murphy, the author and illustrator of A Boy and His Bunny, have once again worked their magic. In Claire, they have created an equally spunky and lovable character, bound to delight and entertain young children and their parents. 
 
“A fun tale that will delight young children and make them giggle as their imaginations soar with the possibilities presented in the story . . . This is truly a delightful story that will put smiles on everyone’s face.” —New York Journal of Books 
 
“Great fun to read aloud . . . Pair this tale with Bryan’s A Boy and His Bunny and David Small’s Imogene’s Antlers for a things-on-your-head-themed storytime.” —School Library Journal 
 
“Entertainingly loopy with its off-the-wall situation and imaginative pell-mell rhyme . . . Planes of apple green and sugar pink dominate the illustrations, while sturdy yet light-hearted line work creates matter-of-factly fantastical scenarios.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

    In Freddy and Simon the Dictator, warning had been printed in the Bean Home News and the Centerboro Guardian, but nobody paid much attention to them. An animal revolt? “Preposterous!” said the Beans and all the other humans. But it’s true—and Simon the rat is determined to turn the farm into a dictatorship. Mr. Camphor has been persuaded (much against his better judgment) to run for governor of New York State, Herb Garble shows up, Jinx defects to the enemy (or does he?), and Freddy—that inimitable pig!—goes to work as the political boss of Otesaraga County. Freddy and Simon the Dictator is classic Brooks, in which the master of barnyard hilarity has a lot of fun satirizing politics and—especially—politicians.

    A pair of bears search for a cure for the hiccups: “The humorous illustrations of his encounters with a variety of animals add interest to the story line.” —School Library Journal 
     
    The hiccups are annoying. They come on quickly and refuse to go away. Just ask Elliot the bear. There he was, having a nice picnic with his cousin Lutz, when he accidentally ate too fast. Now, he's stuck hiccupping around the forest, and Elliot's unbearable situation couldn't be any funnier to Lutz. 
     
     
     
    As Elliot wanders around the forest, all the animals try giving him advice on how to get rid of his hiccups. Maybe holding his breath will do the trick? Or drinking lots of water? Or maybe doing a headstand? No luck. Just when Elliot has all but given up, Lutz unexpectedly stumbles upon the cure. But will Lutz learn his lesson about not making fun of his cousin’s hiccups? Ingrid Sissung's humorous story and vibrant illustrations in The Hiccup remind readers of all ages to show sympathy to others in a tough situation—because what goes around comes around!
