The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Although it looks as though it is for a younger readership, this hilarious and brilliantly observed story tells how the uncouth and troublesome Arthur Crocodile (‘he played his guitar very loud and very late') suddenly becomes a reformed character when he meets Alberta Saurian!

About the Author

Russell Hoban

As a child

Russell Hoban was born in Pennsylvania, USA. His parents were Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine; his father was the advertising manager of a Jewish newspaper as well as a dram guild director. Russell was thus exposed to the arts early on, and became interested in writing at an early age, winning prizes for his stories and poems during his school years.

As an adult

Russell served in the US Infantry during WWII. For a time he taught art in New York and Connecticut. He then worked as a freelance illustrator and an advertising copywriter. He began publishing children's books in 1958, and since then has published more than fifty. His picture book The Sea-Thing Child, illustrated by Patrick Benson, was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Russell passed away at the age of 86 in 2011.
