Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The stars of Warthogs in the Kitchen team up again in Slop Goes the Soup: A Noisy Warthog Word Book by Pamela Duncan Edwards, illus. by Henry Cole. The author uses onomatopoeia to demonstrate how a simple sneeze sets off a messy chain of events for a pair of dinner-prepping warthogs. A note in the back explains onomatopoeia and challenges children to create their own noisy story. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Young children will have their word awareness heightened when they read this delightful, entertaining, fast-paced book about the adventures of a warthog. Onomatopoeia, the term given to words that sound like the noise they describe, is aptly used in this simple story. One thing leads to another once the warthog sneezes (A-A-A-choo!) as he is going about the easy task of carrying soup. Events that follow cause things to slither and wobble, crash and clatter and more. A birdcage flies, a picture tips, a table topples and the warthog's teddy bear ends up sailing into the pudding, all because of the sneeze. The illustrator's unique use of facial expressions on the teddy bear will keep kids looking at the pictures as the text moves along. In the end, the warthog and his friend demonstrate more onomatopoeia words in cleaning up their mess. As the problem settles, their friends arrive for a meal of soup. However, when the visiting hippo sneezes at the book's end, imaginative possibilities abound. An additional page explaining onomatopoeia asks children to create their own stories with these words. Add this to a preschool or home setting to get children rolling with this fun use of language. 2001, Hyperion, $14.99. Ages 2 to 6. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-The lovable, hapless creatures from Warthogs in the Kitchen: A Sloppy Counting Book (Hyperion, 1998) are cooking soup for their dinner party, with mishaps occurring from the very first sneeze to the one at the end, which will likely start trouble all over again. The onomatopoeic sounds will delight youngsters. Cole's pen, colored-pencil, and watercolor pictures complement so very well the chaos in the kitchen, even down to the detail of the little blue teddy bear that, once again, ends up in the dessert. Match this title with Lucy Cousins's What Can Rabbit Hear? (Walker, 1991; o.p.) and Bill Martin, Jr.'s Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? (Holt, 1995) for a rousing storytime. It's lots of fun for lap-sits, too.-Kay Bowes, Concord Pike Library, Wilmington, DE Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Edwards and Cole (Warthogs Paint, p. 739, etc.) collaborate on their third story about a pair of wacky warthogs who explored counting and colors in the previous stories in the series. This time the two are preparing soup and pudding for a dinner party, and a sneeze sets off a chain reaction of sloppy, noisy events, ending with another sneeze. Each plot twist follows the text pattern of the title, with the noisy word in creatively positioned, brightly colored type. ("Rattle goes the bucket. Splash goes the water. Swish goes the mop.") Some of the noise descriptors are a bit of a stretch, as in "Whoosh goes the teddy bear," but overall the story's slapstick comedy is fast-paced and humorous. Cole's pen, colored-pencil, and watercolor illustrations are bold and bright, with an oversized format that will make this a hit in story hours with noise or soup themes. An author's note on the last page cleverly explains the concept of onomatopoeia. (Picture book. 2-7)
