Description

Mr. Crocodile has big plans for finally catching and eating five pesky monkeys. But as the hours pass, the monkeys dupe him again and again. In the end they teach persnickety Mr. Crocodile something about friendship . . . and about having fun.

From the bestselling author of Counting Crocodiles and the talented illustrator of more than eighty children's books, here's a lively story about another thickheaded crocodile outwitted by mischievous monkeys. Children will delight in the rhyming text and will eagerly search for the clock that marks the hour in each spread. Soon they'll be shouting, "What time is it, Mr. Crocodile?"
