I’m starting to expect the worst when I pull books out of the multi-pack bought from the Book People ages ago, but was still blown away by the crapness of Hippo Has a Hat. I’m not worried about offending the author; it does feel like she had to get a book out quickly to fulfill a contract as very little effort has gone into the illustrations, rhymes or story. Honestly, I would take One Mole Digging a Hole over this any day. And, most importantly, Weasel finds it boring and reaches for another books after a few pages.
Verdict: Avoid, avoid, avoid.
