Tales from the Waterhole

author/illustrator: Bob Graham

series name:
Candlewick Sparks

Morris the crocodile and his best friend, Billy, a tortoise, like nothing better than messing around at the waterhole with their animal friends. In five amusing stories, Morris and company do just what kids do during a hot summer ó perform ill-timed stunts on the diving board, get beaten in soccer by a team of moms, and see their wildebeest friends off on vacation (aka their annual migration). By turns wry and laugh-out-loud funny, Bob Grahamís whimsical waterhole gang pays tribute to the merriment and mishaps of young friendships everywhere.

"A warm ode to the unplanned days of summer. Friends of George and Martha or Frog and Toad will read these stories over and over." ó Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
