Pamela Duncan Edwards has written numerous picture books, and Henry Cole has painted a lot of pictures (but he tries to be neater than a warthog). They are the creators of Dinorella: A Prehistoric Fairy Tale; The Wacky Wedding: A Book of Alphabet Antics; Ed & Fred Flea; Honk!: The Story of a Prima Swanerina; and, of course, Warthogs in the Kitchen: A Sloppy Counting Book. They both live in the Washington, D.C. area.From School Library Journal:
reS-Gr 2-The exuberant stars of Warthogs in the Kitchen (Hyperion, 1998) return for more messy fun as they look for something to do on a rainy day. Armed with brushes and dripping cans of yellow, blue, and red paint, they head for the kitchen, intending to decorate a blank white wall. However, their clumsiness soon gets the best of them, and paint is spilled all over the floor. The artists watch excitedly as the three primary colors are accidentally mixed together to create green, orange, and purple, which they enthusiastically add to their masterpiece. At the end of the day, they sit back and admire the colorful rainbow that they have created. Although the rhymes are sometimes a bit forced, the rhythmic text keeps the story moving right along. Done in pen, colored pencils, and watercolors, the artwork is lighthearted and appealing. With their turned-up tusks and bristly brown fur, these creatures are appropriately bumbling and comical. Clean white backgrounds focus the eyes on the action and will help children keep the various color combinations straight. The names of the different colors appear in that color in the text, which also gets the message across. Purchase this if you are looking to supplement standbys such as Ellen Stoll Walsh's Mouse Paint (Harcourt, 1989).
