Excerpt

MY HIPPO HAS THE HICCUPSMy hippo has the hiccupsand his hiccups shake the ground.The floor is
always rumblingwhen my hippo is around.I bought him at the pet store,but I missed a small detail.I didn't
see the sign said,"Hiccupotamus for sale."WALLY WARDS THE SWORD SWALLOWERWally
Wardsswallowed swords,daggers, dirks,and razor blades,lances, spears,garden shears,sabers,
scissors,spikes, and spades.Wally's jawswelcomed saws,hatchets, axes,power drills,arrows,
picks,sharpened sticks;that's how Wallygot his thrills.All the sameit's a shameWally Wardsshould lose
his life.Wally croakedwhen he chokedon a plasticbutter knife.TODAY I HAD A PROBLEMToday I had a
problemwhen I tried to make my bed.My blankets and my comfortergot wrapped around my head.I went
to fl uff the pillowsbut the pillow cover tore,and feathers fl ew all overas I stumbled 'round the fl oor.I
accidentally grabbed the sheetsand pulled them as I fell.I have to say, it seemsmy day's not starting off
too well.I tripped upon a pillowcaseand landed in a heap.Good grief! That's it! I'm staying here
Author Bio
Kenn Nesbitt
Kenn Nesbitt is possibly the funniest and most sought-after children’s poet writing today. When he is not
writing, podcasting, updating his website poetry4kids.com, or visiting schools sharing his wacky brand of
humor with kids across America, Kenn and his pet hippo can often be seen exploring the western plains
in search of the legendary wild cannoli. Okay. So there’s no such thing as a legendary wild cannoli. And
Kenn Nesbitt doesn’t really have a pet hippo. But he wants one. Especially one that doesn’t eat too
much. Maybe a pygmy hippo. They’re so cute. Don’t you agree? Of course you do.


Ethan Long
Ethan Long is a children’s book author and illustrator whose titles include the extremely popular Tickle
the Duck! and the hilarious sequel Stop Kissing Me! He was taught how to draw by a wild boar in the
deep woods of Pennsylvania. He started out learning with his feet, but eventually his hands grew in and
he made the switch. Now look at him. He’s a professional artist and loving life. It’s a dream come true.
“True” being the drawing and the deep woods of Pennsylvania part. Not the part about the wild boar and
drawing with his feet. Nor the part about his hands growing in. That’s kind of sick.
Reviews

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.
