Solomon Crocodile

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

Review

Everything is peaceful on the river, until Solomon Crocodile appears and disturbs everyone from the frogs to the dragonflies to the storks. When he takes on the hippos peacefully bathing in the river, they decide enough is enough and tell Solomon he's nothing but trouble. But then someone else appears to disturb the peace of the river bank...

Catherine Rayner's lovely artwork vividly depicts a lively cast of animal characters in this gorgeous picture book. The mischievous Solomon himself has a brilliantly wicked glint in his eye, and a certain hint of Quentin Blake's illustrations for Roald Dahl's The Enormous Crocodile. With beautiful use of colour and a variety of exquisitely presented spreads, this is a picture book to treasure.
