Bookbug Book of the Month: Professional Crocodile

Professional Crocodile by Giovanna Zoboli & Mariachiara Di Giorgio

ISBN: 978-1452165066


Mr. Crocodile loves his job. Every morning he gets up with an alarm. He brushes his teeth, chooses the right tie to match his outfit, eats a quick slice of toast, and heads off to work on a crowded train. But what is his job? The answer may surprise you!


'Teeth brushed? Check. Tie chosen? Check. Hat? Check. And so begins the day in the life of a professional crocodile. With a slightly surreal twist, this wordless picture book is witty and imaginative and each time you read it, you’ll see something new. Laid out in a storyboard style, each panel is filled with detail for the curious reader to pore over. This was one of my favourite picture books of last year and I cannot recommend it highly enough.'

- Emma Dunn, Early Years Operations Administrator
