KIRKUS REVIEW

Sick in bed and grumpy, Leopard rudely rejects Aardvark's attempt to cheer him up with a puzzle, Crocodile's offer to read him a story, and Hippo's gift of a happy song. But when the same three friends gain access to the sickroom by posing as Drs. Potamus, Vark, and Croco, Leopard accepts puzzle, song, and story with thanks, then feels so much better that he invites his friends (the same three) to dinner and tells them about the wonderful doctors. A good trick, maybe, but a fairly feeble story.
