When the skies of Africa darken with rain and the river swells, a good natured
crocodile named Snout lends his broad back to many stranded
animal neighbors. After he ferries soggy fireflies, dripping hedgehogs, and
other creatures over dangerous waters, his good deeds are repaid in full
when a shift to hot, dry weather leaves him vulnerable instead. Written
by Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis and illustrated by acclaimed
picture book artist Monique Felix, The Good Ship Crocodile is a charming
story of friendship sure to inspire readers of all ages.
Prolific author J. Patrick Lewis has been honored as America’s
Children’s Poet Laureate (2011–13) and garnered the 2011
National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Excellence in
Children’s Poetry Award.
Swiss artist Monique Felix has illustrated more than 40 celebrated
children’s books, including Creative Editions’ popularMouse Book
series, The Rumor, The Velveteen Rabbit, and Tuba Lessons.
