Watch Out for the Crocodile
by Lisa Moroni
Age Range: Under_5
Dad is taking Tora camping. It’s about time they did something fun together Tora thinks. All Dad does is work, drink coffee, sit at his computer and talk on his mobile phone. He’s a bit of a boring father! Now they are off to the forest and Tora is looking forward to seeing some wild animals! And what wide amazing things Tora sees: from a snake (a tree root), flock of giraffes (a gnarled tree trunk), a large lion (big boulders) and even some trolls and fairies. Dad can’t see them at first but he soon gets the hang of it!
Watch Out for the Crocodile is a funny heart-warming story. This is Swedish author Lisa Moroni’s debut picture book and she has created a charming tale of the imaginary world of a child which is complemented beautifully by the unmistakable artwork of her mother Eva Eriksson. There are some lovely moments captured in Tora’s expressions –the endless time spent at the supermarket which Tora estimates is at least half a day or the drive to the forest that is never going to end!
