Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—It is Croc's birthday, so Melrose the dog borrows a boat and sets out to catch a fine fish for his pal. But he gets swept up in a terrible storm at sea. Not to worry; Croc comes gallantly to his rescue, and the two dear friends get to enjoy a happy birthday after all. This simple story, set in a European seaside village, celebrates two caring individuals who think only of one another. Its gentle, affectionate message and expressive illustrations are a wonderful, reassuring way to lull any child into a peaceful sleep in which all is right with the world.—Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC

My 6 yr old granddaughter and 3 1/2 yr old grand son LOVE to read books and have several that they want to hear over and over, namely, MY Lucky Day and Miss Nelson is Missing. I had that hoped this story would be as engaging as some of their favorites, but alas I read it once and they never chose to hear it again. I had to agree that the story was not too interesting. The illustrations were great!

I urge you to buy this book while it is still in print! A sweet story of two friends, a dog and a crocodile, replicated in bright, gorgeous, watercolor illustrations. Great for story time, but you’ll want to own this one, to read it over and over
