A crocodile prepares dinner for his cousins.

PreS-K In each of these mercifully brief picture books, an anthropomorphic animal sets out to complete a domestic projectcooking dinner, building a house and planting a garden. All three books show the animals completing their tasks, more or less successfully, and ending with ``and now I can relax.'' The lackluster cartoon-style illustrations are marked by a cluttered arrangement and unpleasant combinations of washed-out pastels featuring pale yellow skies. The illustrations are matched by a fragmented text that is so dull that words are actually underlined to suggest emphasis. With the number of fine toddler/preschool titles currently being published, these three shouldn't even be considered. Far better are the recent books by John Burningham, Eric Hill, Helen Oxenbury and Anne Rockwell. Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, Wis.
