Synopsis

A Nature Storybook about one of the world's most dangerous animals, with text by top non-fiction author Martin Jenkins and pictures by Satoshi Kitamura.



A witty Nature Storybook about crocodiles, with words by award-winning author Martin Jenkins and playful pictures by Satoshi Kitamura. The main thing about crocodiles is they're really scary - or at least the big ones are. They've got an awful lot of teeth and they're not at all fussy about what they eat, as long as it's got a bit of meat on it. When it comes to hunting down their dinner, they're very determined and very cunning ... so better beware. But you might be surprised to hear that there's more to crocodiles than just their appetites: crocodiles make wonderful mothers! This is a fascinating, rounded look at crocodiles, with Martin's wry text brought to life by Satoshi's lively watercolour paintings. The back matter includes notes on species, an index and a bibliography.
