Review:

If you know Flora McDonnell's award-winning work through Flora McDonnell's ABC, I Love Boats, or I Love Animals, then you're already familiar with her bright, uncluttered, kid-friendly illustrations. Splash begins with two Indian elephants on a sun-soaked yellow background. "Hot, hot, hot! The elephants are hot!" the first page pronounces in large type. And indeed, the overheated elephants look down in the mouth, as do the panting tiger and the pained rhinoceros on the following pages. Relief comes when the baby leads its mother--and presumably the other animals--down to the water. The cool blue rushes to fill the pages, as the elephants squirt and splash, and the rhinoceros goes "Splosh." Refreshed and happy at last, the animals have the baby elephant to thank for the excellent idea--"What a happy, cool, clever little baby elephant!" This simple, winning picture book captures the pure exaltation of a run through the sprinkler on a hot, hot day. (Baby to preschool)

About the Author:

Flora McDonnell graduated in 1989 with a Distinction in Illustrative Arts from the City and Guilds of London Art School. Since then she has completed a variety of artistic projects, including one-person shows on sheep, Calcutta's traffic and her experiences on board an Ardglass trawler. I Love Animals, her first book, won the 1995 Mother Goose Award and was followed by I Love Boats, Flora McDonnell's ABC and her latest title, Giddy Up, Let's Ride! Flora says that Splash! was inspired by watching an elephant called Tara having her daily bath in a river at Kanha National Park in India. "The minute she got to the water she reverted to being the playful, naughty baby elephant she must once have been. I've never seen an animal enjoying water so much!"
