Solomon Crocodile makes the frogs jump, bugs the dragonflies and stalks the storks. Then he tries to mess with the biggest hippo in the river, but fails! William, age 9.

"Uh-Oh, here comes trouble!" It's right there on the front cover of this picture book by Cahterine Rayner called Solomon Crocodile. And he is trouble... and a pest and a nuisance. Finally, after much rowdiness, Solomon sadly realizes that no one wants to play with him. Bummer. Then he meets his glorious match and the swamp rocks with their troublesome ways.
This is a beautifully illustrated (think splashy color) simple story of friendship that will make your young crocs laugh and possibly do some mud stomping right along with Solomon. This is a rowdy read perfect for children who like to join in the action.

Solomon is seen as nothing but a pest by the frogs, dragonflies, storks, hippos and nobody wants to play with him! But there is someone who might think differently-another pesky croc!
