Hiccup Makes A Leap by Delfina Aguilar
The first picture book from Fanny & Alexander, Hiccup Makes a Leap depicts the absurd, endearing journey of a hapless hiccup who decides he needs a career change. Brought to life through the gently humorous illustrations of Sabrina Arnault and Hiromi Suzuki, it's a parable about embracing your individuality and finding your place in the world. Children of all ages, but especially those aged between 3 and 8, will find a very relatable friend in Hiccup, a character whose well-intentioned efforts invariably end in disaster because of his convulsive outbursts. He simply can't understand why peers like Sneeze and Giggle are welcome wherever they go, while people try to scare him away whenever he makes an appearance. A career change could be just the answer - but his quest to find gainful employment sees him creating more mayhem than usual, before finally coming to understand his innate, irreplaceable value. Deftly communicating the importance of self-knowledge, perseverance and pride in what makes you 'you', Hiccup Makes a Leap will help to cultivate tenacity, positive self-regard and an appreciation of diversity among even the youngest readers, all whilst they giggle along with Hiccup's calamitous quest.
Following on from their hugely popular book, 'The Nature of Play', Hiccup Makes a Leap shares the same warm inquisitiveness about our world, but also displays a sunny surreality that will delight children and the grown-ups who read to them.
