Jamie has hiccups on the day of his school play His best friend and co-star is determined to find a cure-no matter how silly, icky, or weird it might be Will the show-HIC -go on? Hiccups-everyone's had 'em, and nobody wants 'em. The familiar dilemma drives this comically exaggerated story of a boy-rabbit battling the inconvenience and embarrassment of a jumpy diaphragm. Hiccup is an ideal choice for kids who are more attuned to sweeter brand of slapstick humor.
