"Read-alouds with this book are going to be loud, so get ready."--"Booklist" "Short, sweet, and tailor-made for story time, this perfectly paced tale of jungle mischief introduces a toddlerlike crocodile, Solomon, whose definition of "fun" is what other animals would probably label '"annoying.'" --"Publishers Weekly", Starred "The juxtaposition of a roaring hippo with an extremely startled Solomon is priceless." --"School Library Journal" "Let Solomon Crocodile loose during a story hour and get ready to roar." --"Horn Book Magazine" "Light and entertaining fun." --"Kirkus Reviews"
Poor Solomon is looking for some fun but no one wants to play. The dragonflies tell him to buzz off, the storks get in a flap, and the hippo? Well, the less said about the hippo, the better! But then somebody else starts causing trouble . . . and for once it is NOT Solomon. Could it be the perfect pal for a lonely crocodile? A snappy, happy, stunning new book from the award-winning Catherine Rayner.
