What would you do if you were settling down for a quiet bedtime story and you realised that a crocodile had fallen out of one story and into yours and was - not to put too fine a point on it - furious? A wonderful picture 'book about books'.

This story is all wrong for the crocodile trapped in it, but is great fun for the reader! A lovely book for sharing and discussing how words and pictures work, with beautiful illustrations that make it truly special.

Author bio:

When Nicola was 5 years old her parents banned Saturday morning television, and she has been drawing ever since. Nicola grew up in Singapore surrounded by the vibrant colours of the tropics and had not even heard of illustration as a career before she discovered the Illustration course at Edinburgh College of Art. Having very recently graduated from ECA, Nicola is pursuing a Masters in Printmaking from Camberwell College of Art as well as a career in children's book illustration. She gets most of her ideas for children's books when she should be working on something else, and bases all of her characters on people she knows. Nicola lives in London where she works mainly out of her living room and the local coffee shop.
