3+: Croc and Bird - Alexis Deacon

Release Date: 01/03/12


Side by side on the sand sat two eggs. With a crack and a rip, the brothers hatch, and out comes a bird and a ...crocodile! But they can't be brothers - can they?


A quirky and unusual story brought to the young reader as two unlikely friends find themselves in a unique situation that allows them to grow together. It’s unusual, it has some great illustrations and demonstrates that whilst people may be different, similarities can allow everyone to become friends. Add to this some bright colours, great use of prose which when backed with the authors unique storytelling style really brings this title together on so many levels.

A truly wonderful read and one that I really can’t wait to share with my nephews.
