Norman, Kim. 2009. Crocodaddy. Sterling.

A young boy has a big imagination in Kim Norman's playful picture book, Crocodaddy. With lovely illustrations by David Walker, it is a light read with lots of attitude:

Safe behind the rock, I see
sly old Crocodaddy
smile at me.
Fearlessly, I step in front,
captain of the Crocodaddy hunt!

The rhythm and rhyme of this one may have your little ones wanting to chime in.

I loved the illustrations. I did. They were probably my favorite part. That's not to knock the text by Kim Norman. It was fun and playful. It was rhythmic. (And that's not always a given these days.) But I think the illustrations evoked the charm that made me want to keep reading this one. And they're well paired with the text, I might add.
