KIRKUS REVIEW

The goofy, pinafored hippo of Mayer's Hiccup and Ah-Choo continues on her obliviously destructive way--driving her car into the traffic light, upsetting a fruit cart and a china shop display case, dismantling a dinosaur skeleton in an attempt to swat a fly, and finally smashing a train that runs into her (unharmed) upturned rump as she stoops to pick a flower on the railroad track. Except that the last disaster is the most extravagant, there's no progression--just a series of obvious slapstick smash-ups.
