Review:

"When Chubbo the hippo finds a pool of cool water, he selfishly chases other animals away. In time, the pool dries up, and he moves to another one--only to find it full of the animals he chased earlier. Embarrassed, he trudges back to wallow in the mud that was his former pool. Soon, however, he is joined by a herd of elephants that circle him and spray water from their trunks until his pool is full once again. Lewin's translucent watercolors offer a realistic portrait of Botswana wildlife set against a spectacular backdrop of sun-filled scenery. Inspired by the author's experience in Botswana, this is a delightful tale that humorously conveys the value of sharing and the joys of friendship." Booklist, ALA

"This story is maximized by Lewin's brilliant, dramatic, softly realistic watercolor paintings of the wildlife in Botswana...The text is simple but rhythmic and rich with expressive adjectives, excellent for reading aloud. the book demonstrates the same high standards for presenting an unusual topic as Lewin's Booby Hatch." School Library Journal
