If I had a crocodile



ISBN: 9780500660270 Category:

Gabby Dawnay


A charming and imaginative story in the bestselling ‘If I had a…’ series, which imagines life with a crocodile as a pet.

There’s more to a crocodile than its scaly skin and scary teeth – they stay cool under pressure (in part because they can’t sweat) and on a rainy day, they love nothing more than a fast game of Snap!

This latest addition to the ‘If I Had a…’ series is packed with humour and rollicking rhymes that young children readily catch on to. Its bold, graphic illustrations are stylish and packed with quirky details for children to spot. The book winds down to a satisfying end where the little girl drifts off to sleep, making it perfect for bedtime routines.
