Emilio Urberuaga began working in the world of illustration in 1982, and his work is featured in the Spanish National Library as well as the Chihiro Art Museum in Tokyo.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-Coco, a timid crocodile, sleeps all day and swings in solitude in the park all night. By following the animal's footprints, curious Paula not only finds his home by the riverbank, but also discovers that he is an escaped circus performer. The two form a magical friendship. Hoping to coax him out of his solitary ways, Paula introduces Coco to her friends and shows him that there is much fun to be had with others. The story ends with a wiser, more self-assured Coco swinging in the darkness, knowing that there are times to be alone and times to be with friends-and that both experiences are to be cherished. The gouache-and-ink illustrations extend the thought-provoking text. Whether shared in a group or one-on-one, this book's heartwarming message will comfort and reassure youngsters.
