‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Catch that Crocodile!
by Anushka Ravishankar
Age Range: Under_5
As Falguni the fruit seller sets out one morning to sell her fresh fruit, she gets the
fright of her life when she discovers a crocodile in a ditch. The incident causes chaos
amongst the townspeople as they try to establish who will ‘catch that crocodile!’
When Probin the Policeman comes along he seems unsure of what to do too!
“I’ll give him a ticket
I’ll charge him a fine
I’ll put it in jail
For crossing the line”.
This rhythmic nonsense-verse tale has a subtle environmental message. Pulak Biswas’ striking folk-art style with its two-colour illustrations in green and black set on a background of cream hand-printed paper blends perfectly to make this a delightful picture book that both children and parents will enjoy.
