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.)
