The Lovereading4Kids comment
From the creator of The Tiger Who Came to Tea comes a glorious picture book full of wonder and adventure. Matty is sick, so sick that he cant go to the Queen’s birthday party with his family and friends. And that makes him very disappointed! But when Matty gets left behind with only his sleepy grandfather to keep him company, something very amazing happens! Soon Matty is having the most fabulous adventures with a very special crocodile who comes out from under the bed… ~ Julia Eccleshare
