Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"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." — KIRKUS REVIEWS (starred review)

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 —- 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 Grahams whimsical waterhole gang pays tribute to the merriment and mishaps of young friendships everywhere.

About the Author

Bob Graham is the award-winning creator of many books for children, including JETHRO BYRD, FAIRY CHILD, winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal; "LET'S GET A PUP!" SAID KATE, a BOSTON GLOBE-HORN BOOK Award winner; and MAX, a PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Best Book of the Year. Of TALES FROM THE WATERHOLE, he says, "As an author, I have loved spending time with Morris, Billy, and friends. Ive been able to send them down to swim and play at the waterhole for endless hours — unaccompanied by their parents. What freedom! At this waterhole, there is no ‘nature red in tooth and claw. Here they string up colored lights at dusk, dance, and take party photos. I might just go and live there." Bob Graham currently lives in Australia.
