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.

Review:

This is a great book for reading aloud, it just bounces along with clear resounding rhymes. It is very funny and the illustrations have a little of the madness of Quentin Blake's pictures of Roald Dahl's enormous crocodile. The moral goes down with a spoonful of sugar! -- Irish Post

Children of three and up will love it. --Financial Times

The same age group (toddlers) will love Crocodiles Are the Best which was short-listed for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. --Sunday Express (UK)

With its big, colourful illustrations and bouncy text this book is bags of fun and literally begs to be read in silly voices. We loved the expressive animal characters, escpecially the amazingly talented Mr Crocodile. The pictures are bright and detailed so there are lots of possibilities for talking round them as well as reading the story straight through. The jolly, rhyming text races along so is entertaining for all readers. Personally I hope this book will be a regular with our baby daughter for years to come. --Carousel (UK)

One to Watch: A vibrantly illustrated read aloud treat, shortlisted for the Dahl Funny Prize --Bookseller, February 19, 2010

This narrative in rhyme is a satisfying read from start to finish. Illustration, text and typography work well enough together to draw the reader in and keep them captivated. There's enough detail in the illustrations to engage and amuse us, not least in the expressions on the faces of the animals as they watch, aghast, the audacity of crocodile boasting about how he can everything they can, only better. --Books for Keeps

Taylor and Shaw are perfectly paired in this vibrantly illustrated read aloud treat that was deservedly shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. There is a gentle moral message, and I suspect it will stand any number of re-readings.' --Children's Bookseller

Sean Taylor's playful rhyme has a Julia Donaldson style charm to it and Hannah Shaw's toothy animals add to the fun as the boastful croc is forced to learn an important new skill - being humble! --Junior Magazine

One to Watch: A vibrantly illustrated read aloud treat, shortlisted for the Dahl Funny Prize --Bookseller
