Sooper dooper Jezebel is perfect in every way. She never gets dirty, she's always top of everything at school, and she always writes her thank-you letters on time. When her schoolmates run away from a crocodile which has escaped from the zoo, Jezebel doesn't because it's against the rules to run.

Tony Ross is the illustrator of I Want a Sister, I Want My Dinner, I'm Coming to Get You, A Message for Santa, and Wash Your Hands! He has received the German Children's Book Prize and the silver medal in the Smarties Prize and has been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3 Jezebel is one of those children whom adults love and children hate. She is perfect: extremely neat (two baths a day), polite, obedient, and at the top of her class in every subject. Of course, like all perfect people, Jezebel is always willing to show others the error of their ways. She is too busy being proper to hear the warning that a crocodile has escaped from the zoo and so she walks, quite properly and neatly, into the croc's waiting jaws. Its response to eating ``the best girl in the world'' is a simple, ``I've tasted better.'' This is typical Ross from the zany cartoon-style watercolors to the ironic biting humor (in this case, both literally and figuratively biting) and the punchy conclusion that redefines justice. As always in Ross' books, the expected is turned inside out and upside down, much to children's delight. This book is sure to please Ross fans and win over many more. All children have a Jezebel in their lives and they'll appreciate a book in which outrageous virtue meets an outrageous reward. Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, Wis.
