Sweet book showing how sometimes the things we are afraid of are just as afraid of us as we are of them. Expressive illustrations are very effective but this is not a great read out loud book.

Another gem from Taro Gomi. Crocodile is afraid of going to the dentist, and the dentist is afraid of the crocodile. Both the crocodile and the dentist must face their fears! A funny story that considers bravery through the dual perspectives.
