Set in Africa, this picture book focuses on a group of animals that visit a waterhole on the savanna. As dawn breaks, a crocodile lurks in the grass at the edge of the pool, a herd of elephants lumbers towards the water for their morning bath, and a pack of wild dogs hunt for breakfast.

Then a remarkable chain of events occurs that involves some tortoises, a young impala and a hippopotamus. You'll understand the title as you read this book.

Based on real, documented animal behavior, this story will astound both young readers and their parents. It almost defies credulity, but supposedly this type of behavior has been observed in the wild and it certainly makes for a fascinating picture book!
