When the crocodiles came to town Written and Illustrated by Magda Brol Hachette Children’s
A wonderfully, colourful and funny book.
It is a large book but that makes it more perfect for sharing with little ones!
The story begins with two bright and busy crocodiles arriving in Dullsville. They certainly add colour and sparkle to the town but the dull towns people are not pleased with the crocs or their habits and behaviours. Eventually they are told to leave!
Feeling sad and dejected they begin packing, while the “naughtiest thieves in the land” arrive to steal the Golden Donkey! Pages of racing, chasing and sticky sauce ensues! Brilliant illustrations accompany the funny text.
A fantastic happy ending to make us smile and see what the crocs can offer the town of Dullsville!
A lovely message about learning about your new neighbours (friends/family/coworkers/etc) and accepting them as they are! We are all different and we bring our own uniqueness to the world! Dullsville needed those crocs! The world needs us to be who we are!
Loved it! Packed in bag to deliver to school on Monday!
I am a primary school teacher, turned librarian. Now I have the title Reading Advocate for ASSET Education Trust, based in Suffolk.
I read constantly and have more books than bookshelves, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I celebrate reading every day at work and at home with my two children, aged 11 and 9.
I sit on the National Executive Committee for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups and run an OU/UKLA Teachers as Readers group!
