Hip and Hop are not speaking, thanks to a big, round, orange problem--both really want to be pumpkins for Halloween. But bossy Hop says they can’t have the same costume. To make matters worse, it’s raining outside, so there will be no trick-or-treaters . . . and no candy! Halloween is ruined, unless this quirky hippo and rabbit duo can find a way to save the holiday--together.
The award-winning creator of Animal Kisses launches a new series about an exuberant hippo and a persnickety rabbit who prove that best friends come in all shapes and sizes!
Look for Hip, Hip, Hooray Day!, coming in spring 2002.

Review:

Halloween is approaching, and Hip the hippo and bunny Hop are on the verge of ending their best-friendship over it. Hop has decided to dress up as a pumpkin for trick-or-treating. More than anything, Hip wants to be a pumpkin, too, but bossy Hop says no-can-do. After some negotiating, Hip reluctantly agrees to be a pirate, but on the condition that Hop gives her all his green M&Ms and lets her choose both their costumes next year. Still, Hip is not thrilled with the arrangement, and when an ominous rain cloud makes its appearance on Halloween day, it looks like neither Hip nor Hop is going to have a very good holiday. Can their friendship weather this trying time or will there be a pair of miserable, soggy jack-o'-lanterns sulking on their front steps on Halloween night?

From the creator of Animal Kisses and Baby Animal Kisses comes a Halloween picture book that will speak to kids all year round. Sharing is tough, and when one friend tends to dominate, there's bound to be trouble sooner or later. Young readers will surely recognize themselves in this three-chapter book. Yes! It's a chapter book, even if the pictures mostly fill the pages, leaving room for a few lines of text at the bottom of each page. Little Hop and rotund Hip, with their tangerine, lime, turquoise, and azure furniture, walls, and clothing, are a real treat for the eye. Watch for future adventures from Hip and Hop. (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
