What is a crocodile's favourite thing? by Ben Hawkes

Jonathan Cape, 2013. ISBN 9781780080222.
One of the world's greatest unanswered questions - until now. What IS a crocodile's favourite thing? Is it a racing car that looks like a sausage or maybe riding a tricycle made of jelly on the moon? No - it's ...!
Children will have a lot of fun with this book, not only making up crazy-daisy scenarios that might be the answer but also interpreting them in art! But beware of the twist in the tale.
This is another one of those quirky picture books that just look like a lot of fun on the surface, but which, in the hands of a creative teacher, can lead to a lot of literacy and language learning.
