Synopsis

Catch that Crocodile! by Anushka Ravishankar

Catch that Crocodile is the hilarious nonsense-verse story of a rampant reptile who finds his way out of the water and onto dry land, and the hapless villagers who try to capture him. India's much-loved nonsense writer Anushkar Ravishankar and award-winning illustrator Pulak Biswas work together to create a fun and energetic tale, imparting a subtle conservationist message along the way.

Reviews

A glorious poem, matched with bold, folk-art illustrations - a memorable and catchy verse story.

In this delightful story set in India, the typography and placement of words becomes an art form in itself.
