My Hippo Has the Hiccups

My Hippo Has the Hiccups - by Kenn Nesbitt Don't Ever Bite Your Sister

Don't ever bite your sister.
Don't kick her in the shin.
Don't slap your sister silly
and don't sock her on the chin.

Don't tape a "Kick Me" poster
upon your sister's back.
Don't take your stinky socks off
and then put them in her pack.

Don't purchase plastic spiders
and place them on her head.
Don't leave your rubber rattlesnake
inside your sister's bed.

Don't do this to your sister
for, if you ever do,
I'm pretty sure she may do something
even worse to you.

Hilarious poems from the #1 children's poetry website in the world!

Kenn Nesbitt's hilarious poetry is adored by kids who flock to his website - poetry4kids.com - the most visited children's poetry website in the world. Kids just can't get enough of the great beats, wonderful imagery, and good ol' belly laughs his poetry contains.

My Hippo Has the Hiccups is the must-own poetry book of the year from one of the most sought-after school performers in North America. This collection of over one hundred of Kenn's newest and best-loved poems is exclusively available in this revolutionary book-with-CD package. The dynamic CD brings the poems to life with Kenn reading his own poetry, cracking a joke or two, and even telling stories about how the poems came to be.

Meet the misbehaving robots, not-so-smart dogs, and angry vegetables who feature in Kenn Nesbitt's hilarious collection of clever wordplay that is sure to keep kids laughing and loving poetry all year long.

What Others are Saying

Kenn Nesbitt's new book is a perpetual scream machine, an 800-hoarse power, turbo-verb joyride, that runs on puns, and a bottomless tank of laughing gas, all the while doing wheelies along your funny bone.
--J. Patrick Lewis, author of Birds on a Wire

Wonderfully clever word play! My Hippo Has the Hiccups is a treasure trove of fun from a very punny guy.
--Charles Ghigna author of SCORE! 50 Poems to Motivate and Inspire

Taking lessons from Jack Prelutsky, Kenn Nesbitt feeds kids a seemingly boundless feast of belly laughs and funny-bone ticklers.
--Bobbi Katz author of Around the Sun

Mix the poetic DNA of Silverstein and Prelutsky, and you have Kenn Nesbitt!

Children will love Kenn's cautionary tales featuring Wally Wards the Sword Swallower and Peter Prim the Fire-Eater, but teachers will cherish their copies of MY HIPPO HAS THE HICCUPS, too: a whole lesson in wordplay can be built around mixed-up Anna Graham who "says calm instead of clam," while Izzy O'Rainty, prince of the double-negative, will have children clamoring for grammar!
--Janet Wong author of Behind the Wheel

Whether you're looking for a chortle, a chuckle, or a belly laugh, grab this book and let Kenn's wackiness carry you away.
--Paul B. Janeczko author of Dirty Laundry Pile: Poems in Different Voices
