In his swampy home, Solomon is looking for fun but nobody wants to play. The dragonflies tell him to buzz off, the storks get in a flap, and the hippo is downright huffy. But then somebody else starts making a ruckus . . . and for once it is NOT Solomon. Could it be the perfect pal for a lonely croc? Matching vibrant art with rollicking words, Scottish artist Catherine Rayner has created a funny, reassuring story about a rambunctious youngster who chases off the friends he’s trying to make.

Praise for Solomon Crocodile

“Read-alouds with this book are going to be loud, so get ready.”--Booklist

“The juxtaposition of a roaring hippo with an extremely startled Solomon is priceless.” --School Library Journal
 
“Let Solomon Crocodile loose during a story hour and get ready to roar.” --Horn Book Magazine
 
“Light and entertaining fun.” --Kirkus Reviews
