Solomon and Mortimer

Written by Catherine Rayner

Illustrated by Axel Scheffler

Solomon and Mortimer Synopsis

Solomon Crocodile and his friend Mortimer are bored. They want to find some fun, but what can they do? Tree-climbing is tricky, chasing lizards doesn't end well and flying turns out to be a lot harder than it looks. But then they spot the biggest hippo in the river. Just imagine the splash he'd make if two naughty crocodiles were to surprise him! But Solomon and Mortimer are about to get a whole lot more than they bargained for . . . Sure to delight fans of the original Solomon Crocodile, which has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide, Solomon and Mortimer is a warm, funny and charming tale from the Kate Greenaway Medal winning Catherine Rayner, which young children will ask for again and again.

Solomon and Mortimer Press Reviews

Read-alouds with this book are going to be loud, so get ready. Booklist on Solomon Crocodile Let Solomon Crocodile loose during a story hour and get ready to roar. Horn Book Magazine on Solomon Crocodile The juxtaposition of a roaring hippo with an extremely startled Solomon is priceless. School Library Journal on Solomon Crocodile Short, sweet, and tailor-made for story time, this perfectly paced tale of jungle mischief introduces a toddlerlike crocodile, Solomon, whose definition of fun is what other animals would probably label ' annoying.' Publishers Weekly, Starred on Solomon Crocodile
