A wonderful book which pulls those reading or hearing it into being an active participant in helping to rid the book of the crocodile. Kindergarteners love hearing this one!

Imaginative and brings interaction to a book what more can you ask for.
One of the better ones of this type of childrens book, along with "Don't touch the button", "Press here" and "the Magic Tree".
We need more books like this to help kids realise what reading does for them and their spirit and mind.

A great read aloud story book. The book encourages interactivity and is fun for both children and adults.

A fun storytime book. Definitely enjoyable by both the adults and children. Similar to Melanie Watt's "Chester" series of picture books, in which the starting story is 'hijacked' by a disruptive character and rest of the story is spent attempting to get him or her under control.

A re-telling of the ugly duckling story which encounters a crocodile right after the main characters are introduced. The author then attempts to give the reader advice on how to deal with the crocodile as it wakes up and wrecks the story by eating the letters and pages.
