Being a bush poet from way back, I’ve always been a big fan of Waltzing Matilda so I was really looking forward to reading Once a Creepy Crocodile, a picture book written to the same rhyming meter. I wasn’t disappointed.
And his tail waggled and wiggled while he winked and grinned and giggled saying,
‘Please come and join me for afternoon tea’.
Luckily, the brolga is kept from harm by the animals of the billabong.
Afternoon tea has never been so dangerous! (Or fun!)
Once a Creepy Crocodile is a riot of colour that lends itself to being an entertaining classroom read or whole family fun.
There’s a cheeky twist at the end that will leave young readers giggling – and Nina Rycroft has illustrated the perfect afternoon tea.
Kids will love the engaging animals and the entertaining illustration detail in Once a Creepy Crocodile.
This book comes with its own singalong CD. Once a Creepy Crocodile is published by The Five Mile Press
