The Christmas Crocodile

Written by Bonny Becker, illustrated by David Small

Just imagine the possibilities when Alice Jayne finds a crocodile under her tree on Christmas Eve. The croc begins by eating the red bow around its neck and proceeds to nibble everything in its path—even taking a “teeny, tiny bit” of Aunt Figgy’s toe!

“Becker’s zany tale is wonderfully complemented by Small’s witty drawings of a grand, old-fashioned house inhabited by Alice Jayne, her dotty relatives and one house-wrecking crocodile with a very expressive face.”
