Review:

A great example of how to make learning fun. This is an unusual crocodile in that he plays crazy golf, goes to a sleepover and visits a funfair! HIs favourite holiday treat was crazy golf, of course. This is the most speedy, greedy and tough crocodile we have seen since Peter Pan and well worth a read. One of my godchildren' s favourite pages was the one where they discovered that a crocodile has about 3000 teeth in its lifetime and that that is about 60 times more teeth than us... at this point I could see the pound signs ` ching ching' in his eyes as he said [and I read, simultaneously in humourous harmony together], ` that' s a lot of money from the Tooth Fairy!
