Crocodaddyby Kim Norman
Synopses & Reviews
Celebrate the imagination—and the love between father and son—with this new board book edition of the fun, rhyming, and totally original story. On a hot summer's day, a young boy playfully sets out on a “crocodaddy hunt” in the lake. Following the creature's shadow, dark and wet, he's soon taking a wild ride on the grinning croc's back. And when they leave the water, something wonderful happens: Crocodaddy transforms into…just DADDY. Bright, energetic illustrations (complete with wily crocodile in Dad's swim trunks) highlight the story's humor and warmth.
