"The pages of this story come alive with colorful, personable African animals. The tale takes place in Uganda, and the principal characters are Auntie Sanyu and the warthog. Auntie Sanyu builds a sukkah and then invites the animals to share in the festivities. Just like the holiday itself, the story lasts for eight days, during which the rhino, camel, parrot, lion and others come to visit.
However, the warthog, who is fascinated with the etrog, refuses to share it. The animals try many tactics to get him to cooperate; it’s the last guest, Sara, who solves the problem.
Small children will love the parade of bright jungle animals and the book’s lilting poetry. The issue of selfishness, and the chaos it can create, can easily be discussed with young readers or listeners.
A glossary and information about the Abayudayas, a Ugandan Jewish community, is included.
Recommended for children ages 4 to 8." - Jewish Book Council
