In this fresh and playful board book, the kind crocodile leaves his pond to see the world. Animals are in danger out here! Here comes a terrified mouse, a frightened hog, an antelope. One by one they find shelter on Crocodile's long back, while his big teeth scare their enemies away. GRRR!

Is there room for an enormous, frightened rhino? Yes! But a growling lion is too much. GRRR! And then the crocodile turns on his friends. GRRR! "Just joking!" says crocodile. "Not kind!" say the friends.

This funny board book from Leo Timmers, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book Award author, features his trademark detailed illustrations full of expression and a satisfying twist ending-will Crocodile turns on its friends? Of course not, the kind crocodile is just kid, leaving much to discuss about when a joke is not that funny.

Kind Crocodile is a board book to enjoy again and again with a good message at its heart, about jokes that transgress the boundary of kindness.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Humorous, expressive illustrations." - Bank Street Best Children's Books 2023

"A diverting reminder that kindness comes in all shapes and sizes—and sometimes requires community." - Publishers Weekly

"Kids will enjoy the buildup as more and more animals look to Crocodile for help...The words are sparse and the message is subtle, but effective." - Politics and Prose Bookshop, US
