A colourful counting story about a selfish, bossy warthog who wants the watering hole all to himself. Elephants, leopards, giraffes, zebras and baboons all try to drink at the waterhole and are chased away by the grumpy warthog. They always sneak back for a drink and one day the warthog returns to his waterhole to find that they have drunk all the water and only thick brown mud is left.

Picture story book for children by a New Zealander.

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-A bossy warthog's aggressive noises only temporarily chase other creatures away from the precious waterhole. The rhymed text provides counting practice, from two weaver birds to eight elephants who drink down to the mud basin. Rain at book's end allows readers to leave warthog with hope. The realistically drawn animals have cartoon-style expressions to convey personality. Unfortunately, the setting offers little opportunity for color variations, so the overall visual effect is drab.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
