Crocs!

Overview

Crocs are wild when riled,
But, usually mild
Milder than a mouse

And they want to assure you
They love you, adore you!
Which is why they've moved into your house

Crocs populate scary movies, fenced-in zoo enclosures, and nightmares. But what if a horde of crocs moved in ...

Overview

Crocs are wild when riled,
But, usually mild
Milder than a mouse

And they want to assure you
They love you, adore you!
Which is why they've moved into your house

Crocs populate scary movies, fenced-in zoo enclosures, and nightmares. But what if a horde of crocs moved in with you?

A boy in need of a vacation heads to a tropical island, expecting rest and relaxation until a horde of crocodiles descend upon him. In David Greenberg's disgustingly funny version, crocs drink Tabasco sauce, get tangled in dental floss, and turn the house in a swamp. In the dramatic climax, the biggest croc of all reveals himself, and in a surprising twist, crowns our hero the king of the crocs. Fans of Snakes!, Slugs, Bugs! and Skunks! will delight in this newest celebration of a creepy creature.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
A young boy takes his cat and dog and leaves the city because of all the horrifying critters. He is tired of dealing with giant tabby cats, defiant scabby rats, roaches, pigeons, wild poodles, squirrels and fleas with tiny fangs. The three travelers arrive on a tropical island. They feel secure in their hammock enjoying the birds and the breezes. They have no notion that all around them the ocean is filled with tons of terrifying crocs. The boy becomes suspicious that something is not right. Then he becomes paranoid. Suddenly, he is smothered by a tidal wave of crocs. They growl and howl and thrash and smash. They come in disguises and all kinds of sizes. But they really adore the boy, so they move into his house. The boy and the cat adjust to the mess and live in peace until the day their island reveals its true nature. Then they stay on as royalty. Written in verse, the story is pure joyful nonsense. The expressive illustrations capture the drama of this wild imaginative adventure. A fun choice for storytime reading. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
School Library Journal

K-Gr 3- Unpredictable, this story is a bit like a submerged crocodile; you never know what it might do next. The rhyme opens with an illustration of a red-headed boy, flanked by a cat and a dog, looking out the back of a yellow cab ("It really is a pity/that you had to leave the city/Because of all the horrifying critters"). Among the pests are "Roaches in your omelets/Pigeons dropping bomblets/Wild poodles stalking you in gangs." The child goes to an island where there are "birds and butterfly/Breezes flutter by...," and finds himself in a hammock where crocodiles are everywhere and about to stage, what initially appears to be, a coup. The zany illustrations-done in mixed-media, soft-palette watercolors with pen and ink-use plenty of white space and add humor and charm to the perfect-pitch verses. The crocs are the storybook kind and will win readers over. Who can resist "A crocodile chef with a wok/Crocodile teens/In sagging jeans/crocodile fireman, crocodile cop?" A superb read-aloud.-Teresa Pfeifer, Alfred Zanetti Montessori Magnet School, Springfield, MA

Kirkus Reviews
Greenberg has mellowed some since the gleeful grotesqueries of his glorious Slugs! (1983), but his penchant for creatures creepy and crawly hasn't abated a jot. Having survived Bugs! (1997), Skunks! (2001) and Snakes! (2004), the stolid young hero decides to eschew the terrors of the city and take a vacation to a tropical island. Unbeknownst to him, the island he has chosen is quickly swarmed by crocs of every size and mannerism. Fortunately these are friendly reptiles, and even when the island itself is revealed to be a gigantic croc on its tummy, the boy is still crowned king (in a rather Sendakian twist), and everything is swell thereafter. The bouncy verse emphasizes the wry while Munsinger's pictures lighten some of the tale's darker elements, making for a perfect mix of scary and fun. For fans of the pair's previous books, this title will offer much of the same with a sweet edge entirely its own. (Picture book. 4-8)
