Bright and cheery illustrations on each page make this short story appealing to young readers. Designed for children ‘who are gaining confidence in reading’ it is a rhyming tale of a boastful crocodile who gets taken down a peg or two by a mixed selection of other animal characters. Text is positioned at the bottom of every page, providing a simple layout and the rhyming text may help develop fluency, although the text layout does not always support the reader in grasping the rhythm. Lots to look at and talk about on each page mean that the young reader will get more out of this text when reading together rather than independently.
