The Waterhole by Graeme Base
Author and Illustrator : Graeme Base
Format : Paperback
Condition : New
Down to the secret waterhole the animals all come,
As seasons bring forth drought and flood, they gather there as one.
United in their common need, their numbers swell to ten,
But hidden deep amongst the trees lie ten times that again!
The Waterhole is an ingenious fusion of counting book, puzzle book, storybook and art book – an exhilarating journey of discovery, from the plains of Africa and the Jungles of the Amazon to the woodlands of North America and the deserts of outback Australia
