From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 DePaola turns his gaze from the beloved hills of Italy to return to the fertile shores of Egypt's Nile River (Bill and Pete Putnam, 1978). Bill, a crocodile, and his inseparable friend Pete, a crocodile bird, head off for Bill's first day of school. Under the tutelage of Ms. Ibis they learn a fair bit of Egyptian history. The humor is gentle, and a bit of mystery and adventure is woven in as Bill and Pete capture a couple of bad guys during a class trip down the Nile. Egyptian motifs and warm colors accompany the full-page drawings that show Mama's ever-present gaze, always full of loving hearts for her dear son Bill. Humor, adventure, even a bit of Egyptian history and lorewho could ask for anything more, except for more ``Bill and Pete'' adventures. Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library
