Thank you Chronicle Books for sending a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review

Mr. Crocodile loves his job. Every morning he gets up with an alarm. He brushes his teeth. He chooses the right tie to match his outfit, eats a quick slice of toast, and heads off to work on a crowded train. But what exactly is his job? The answer may surprise you! Readers will want to pore over this witty, wordless book again and again, finding new details and fresh stories with every reading.

Professional Crocodile is a brilliant book! It is witty and fun while being beautifully entertaining. Mr. Crocodile has a morning routine similar to anyone. He has to get dress, catch the subway, and get to work on time. Of course, it is more amusing to watch a Crocodile fit in with the human world, but his demeanor and attitude are similar to anyone headed to work. The climax of this book is figuring out what he does for a living and in that, lies the humor of this well-thought out book.

This wordless book contains wonderful illustrations that are just colorful and full of life. Some of pages are in a comic-style, with multiple picture sequences on one page. With so many things to look at, this book is entertaining for all ages. You definitely don't want to miss out on this great book!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
