The Lovereading4Kids comment

With his helpful, happy expression Harvey the crocodile is an irresistible little character. There’s nothing he wants more than to be like Superhero Steve and do daring and heroic things for others. When on a trip across town to return Steve’s cloak, a string of happy accidents results in Harvey getting the credit for stopping a thief, putting out a fire and saving a life, he is hailed as a hero. The story is carried equally by the text and the illustrations and this clever little story will have children laughing and laughing. ~ Andrea Reece

The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “Superheroes are the best! Children will love the way all Harvey's mishaps turn into good deeds in this lovely story with a truly irresistible little hero!”

Harvey the Hero by Hrefna Bragadottir

Harvey is Superhero Steve's BIGGEST fan and dreams of being just like him ...When Steve leaves his cape behind and Harvey bravely sets off to the Big City to return it, the little croc gets his wish, as without even realising it he foils a robbery, puts out a birthday-cake fire and saves a bunny from falling. It's only when he returns home to his proud and excited friends and see the news on TV that he realises ...he's Harvey the Hero!


Praise for Baxter's Book:

It is hard not to love a book about loving books, and Baxter’s Book by Hrefna Bragadottir is the story of a peculiar blue birdlike creature who auditions to be in a book, but doesn’t conform to expectations. Simple words and comic pictures let us know that even the odd deserve attention. – The Sunday Times
