Poor Solomon is looking for some fun but no one wants to play. The dragonflies tell him to buzz off, the storks get in a flap, and the hippo? Well, the less said about the hippo, the better! But then somebody else starts causing trouble . . . and for once it is NOT Solomon. Could it be the perfect pal for a lonely crocodile?

Solomon Crocodile is a snappy, happy book from Catherine Rayner, winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal. This chunky board book format with a beautifully foiled cover is perfect for younger readers. Featuring instantly recognizable, stunning artwork and an irresistibly cheeky central character that children will love, Solomon Crocodile is a book to treasure.

Solomon Crocodile makes the frogs jump, bugs the dragonflies and stalks the storks. Then he tries to mess with the biggest hippo in the river, but fails! William, age 9.

"Uh-Oh, here comes trouble!" It's right there on the front cover of this picture book by Cahterine Rayner called Solomon Crocodile. And he is trouble... and a pest and a nuisance. Finally, after much rowdiness, Solomon sadly realizes that no one wants to play with him. Bummer. Then he meets his glorious match and the swamp rocks with their troublesome ways.
This is a beautifully illustrated (think splashy color) simple story of friendship that will make your young crocs laugh and possibly do some mud stomping right along with Solomon. This is a rowdy read perfect for children who like to join in the action.

Solomon is seen as nothing but a pest by the frogs, dragonflies, storks, hippos and nobody wants to play with him! But there is someone who might think differently-another pesky croc!
