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.
