Reviews

"A wide-eyed, open-hearted evocation of a refugee's experience...The text takes care to delineate Crocodile's journey such that it stirs compassion." —Kirkus Reviews

"Exploring the struggles and concerns facing immigrant families with sensitivity and a touch of playfulness, Crocodile’s plight will resonate with today’s children. As a crocodile now living in a community of mice, there are a lot of new things for him to learn and think about. Expressive illustrations follow Crocodile’s journey as he finally discovers what he needs to feel at home." —Foreword Reviews
