What would you do if you were settling down for a quiet bedtime story and you realised that a crocodile had fallen into your storybook and was - not to put too fine a point on it - furious? Would you slam that book shut, cram it in the bookshelf for evermore or would you be brave enough to peek? This very grumpy crocodile has ended up in totally the wrong book, so he proceeds to eat his way out, in this fantastic debut picture book. He tries to escape a storybook that is all wrong for him, but is great fun for the reader! "What is he doing now? He's chewing the pictures! And he's eating the letters too! I think his favourites are O and S."

A Book with a bite...

My little boy Joseph (2 1/2 years old) loved this book. Its very clever how its written beginning with a story of the Ugly Duckling until we realise that a crocodile is trying to eat the story all up.

There are lots of creative ideas when reading this book involving lots of discussion with shaking the books and rocking the book, searching for the crocodile. Loved the hole in the back on the book too where the crocodile had escaped.
