The Kiwi and the Woodland Crocodile
by Catherine Day
About the Book
A cunning woodland crocodile meets a delicious-looking kiwi in a New Zealand pine forest. This story is about why they are unlikely to meet again.
Children between 2 and 7 will enjoy this appealing and original book. The author's illustrations and the book's gentle humour also appeal to smaller - and much bigger - people.
As well as the story, the book includes basic, accessible information about the real animals and some enjoyable nuggets of wisdom readers can take from the story.
Catherine's daughter, Tabitha, has inspired three books. The Kiwi and the Woodland Crocodile was created to celebrate her first birthday in November 2010. The Bear Whose Coat Was Too Thin was created for Tabitha to take with her when she started going to a nursery in January 2011. Mrs Cat Makes Shortbread was created because of Tabitha's appreciation for both cats and shortbread, and to give her new ways of enjoying her great-great-Grandmother's delicious shortbread recipe.
