As the morning passes, Homer the frog sits on the gray-brown rock, awaiting the arrival of his friend, Amos, lingering patiently despite his friends' teasing and Amos's notorious forgetfulness and tardiness.

The virtues of patience and faith figure into this forthright tale of friendship. Awaiting the arrival "this morning" of his pal Amos, Homer the frog sits anxiously atop a gray-brown rock: "he said to wait, so wait I will." The patient amphibian is visited by various colleagues, all of whom chide him for his inactivity and declare in no uncertain terms that waiting is a waste of time. ("You should go home and eat flies," a lizard advises.) But Homer remains steadfast, eliciting promises from all non-believers to return at noon with refreshments to share with Amos. Just as morning threatens to become afternoon, Homer's rocky perch moves--Amos the tortoise had been on the scene all along. With its familiar, old-time fable tone, Kulling's gentle narrative will comfort little ones while offering a subtle message about comradeship. Lowe's splashy, intensely colored watercolors spill over the pages, suggesting a cross between Patricia MacCarthy's batik art and a child's free-form finger painting. Ages 3-7.
