The Selfish Crocodile Library by Faustin Charles


The Selfish Crocodile Library by Faustin Charles

This small library, perfect for little baby hands, features not only the selfish crocodile but a whole host of his friends, as familiar themes for pre-school readers are explored. Children will relish learning about numbers, colours, animals, sounds, food and first words in these bright and brilliant board books.


Praise for The Selfish Crocodile: 'The tale has a quite wonderful simplicity and a pace and rhythm characteristic of the oral tradition at its best. On the page or in performance, Charles is a master at making every word count for young audiences: this picture book is super storytelling ... Terry's illustrations are an equal delight

'The illustrations are wonderfully expressive, and it's a simple tale with a good moral that deserves retelling - night, after night, after night!'

'The Selfish Crocodile Library sees the return of a much-loved character created by Faustin Charles ... Michael Terry's illustrations have instant appeal and are well pitched for the age range with their balance of colour, humour and clarity'
