Warthogs Paint

A Messy Color Book

Pamela Duncan Edwards

When some warthogs find themselves stuck inside on a rainy day, they decide to paint - first red, then yellow, then blue, they mix their colors and cover the walls (and themselves) with fun. Preschoolers will learn about primary colors and how they mix to make secondary colors in this messy companion to Warthogs in the Kitchen: A Sloppy Counting Book.


"The goofy warthogs are too cute to resist." —Childrens Literature

"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." —School Library Journal

"...a solid, slapstick introduction to color, plus utterly inspirational when it comes to making a rainy day bright." —Kirkus
