Book review: A Crocodile in the Family


A Crocodile in the Family by Kitty Black, illustrated by Daron Parton, Hachette Australia, ISBN 9780734419507

Aiden received a review copy of this book from Alphabet Soup.

I like the book because it was all about family. My favourite part was when they said the crocodile was helpful. My favourite characters are the crocodile and the birds. I like the pictures and the bright colours and I also like the texture of the cover, how the words pop out and some of the birds. I also liked the end picture because the crocodile and the birds were holding hands and walking with each other.

Read an interview with the author.
