Crocodaddy by Kim Norman


Crocodaddy by Kim Norman

Celebrate the imagination - and the love between father and son - with this paperback edition of Kim Norman's fun, rhyming, and totally original tale. On a hot summer's day, a young boy playfully sets out on a 'crocodaddy hunt' in the lake. Following the creature's shadow, dark and wet, he's soon taking a wild ride on the grinning croc's back. And when they leave the water, something wonderful happens: Crocodaddy transforms into...just DADDY. Bright, energetic illustrations (complete with wily crocodile in Dad's swim trunks) fully capture the story's humour and warmth.
