Solomon and Mortimer
Publisher: Macmillan Children’s Books
Catherine Rayner’s cheeky character, Solomon Crocodile, is back - and this time he’s joined by his friend Mortimer.
The two crafty crocodiles are bored and looking for some fun, but find there isn’t much to do. Soon they hatch a plan of playing a sneaky trick on the biggest hippo wading in the river bank to create an enormous splash - what absolute fun that would be! But does it go according to plan…?
Catherine Rayner’s artwork is always so delightful and she beautifully depicts the peaceful river banks being disturbed by these two mischievous crocodiles - the final spread is a vividly chaotic delight to the eyes. Fun and sweet; a snappy read to enjoy at bedtime.
