Crocs are wild when riled,
But, usually mild
Milder than a mouse
And they want to assure you
They love you, adore you!
Which is why they've moved into your house
Crocs populate scary movies, fenced-in zoo enclosures, and nightmares. But what if a horde of crocs moved in with you?
A boy in need of a vacation heads to a tropical island, expecting rest and relaxation until a horde of crocodiles descend upon him. In David Greenberg's disgustingly funny version, crocs drink Tabasco sauce, get tangled in dental floss, and turn the house in a swamp. In the dramatic climax, the biggest croc of all reveals himself, and in a surprising twist, crowns our hero the king of the crocs. Fans of Snakes!, Slugs, Bugs! and Skunks! will delight in this newest celebration of a creepy creature.
Lynn Munsinger is the illustrator of nearly one hundred picture books, including "Bugs!," "Skunks!," and "Crocs!" by David T. Greenberg. She lives in Vermont.
