The Good Ship Crocodile by J. Patrick Lewis & Monique Felix

the good ship crocodileYou know it must be picture book magic when Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis teams up with Monique Felix, illustrator of one of my personal favorites, The Story of a Little Mouse Trapped in a Book.

Snout is a crocodile and an unlikely good guy with a big heart. When the African rains come and the river rises, he ferries many friends across the water…many you wouldn’t typically associate with trusting a crocodile!

He finds out later it pays to be nice to everyone. When he becomes disoriented and cannot find his way home, a group of fireflies light the way.

This book is truly delightful. The text is simple; however perfect for the illustrations!


Order in Bibz.
