What a braggart is Crocodile! The animals watch in amazement as he demonstrates how he is "the best animal of all." He can climb better than Mountain Goat; he can hop higher than Kangaroo; he can even swing through the trees better than Orangutan. But Donkey thinks he knows of something that Crocodile can't do and sets out to prove it. Is it true? Crocodile says no: "I could eat you for breakfast with buttered toast!" he roars. This funny and colorful story by writer-performance artist Sean Taylor features vivid artwork by rising children's book artist Hannah Shaw.
