My youngest son has been walking around the house saying “pop, pop, pop” for the last few weeks (imitating the balloons in this story). I love the way this engaging book teaches kids about how different cultures try to resolve a common problem.In this story, our adorable heroine suffers from hiccups at the class party. Her classmates (representing diverse ethnicities) propose wonderful multicultural solutions to this universal problem. Unfortunately, her hiccups keep coming back! What can Mei Ling do? Hint: Think of the “pop, pop, pop” mentioned at the beginning of this review.Books for Keeps, the largest independent monthly review magazine for children's books in the UK, calls this is “a wonderful, engaging story with superb illustrations.” My kids and I agree!
