Open Very Carefully: A Book with Biteby Nick Bromley, Nicola O'Byrne
What would you do if you were settling down for a quiet bedtime story and you realized that a crocodile had fallen into your storybook and was — not to put too fine a point on it — wreaking havoc? Would you slam that book shut and cram it back onto the bookshelf? Or would you be brave enough to peek?

Meet the Author
Nick Bromley works in educational publishing. His collaboration with Nicola O’Byrne and Nosy Crow on the words for Open Very Carefully is his publishing debut.
Nicola O’Byrne was banned from watching Saturday morning television by her parents and she has been drawing ever since. She grew up in Singapore surrounded by the vibrant colors of the tropics and had not even heard of illustration as a career before she discovered the Illustration course at Edinburgh College of Art. She has a masters in printmaking from Camberwell College of Art. Nicola O’Byrne gets most of her ideas for children’s books when she should be working on something else, and bases all of her characters on people she knows. She lives in England.

Went to local book shop this morning with my 3 year old grandson to hear Nicola read her tale. It was amazing... Jack love the story, though he did suggest (in the shop ) that w could get rid of the croc with a hammer...Not normally a violent child I don't know where he got that idea from....Having purchased the book and having it signed he wanted it read TWICE when we got home and now has taken it home with daddy for mum to see when she gets back from work later. Definitely recommend this book, it's fantastic and very descriptive and all the children there seemed to enjoy hearing the story
