Solomon crocodile by Catherine Rayner

Solomon crocodile is full of mischief and having loads of fin bugging all the other animals on the banks of an African river - until he comes up against a rather large and annoyed Hippo who tells him off.  But that is not the end of the story as there is something or someone else bothering the frogs, the dragonflies and the storks.  A fun and delightful book with gorgeous illustrations that are full of energy and bounce - just like Solomon.  A funny read for younger readers listening to their favourite big person read aloud to them, and a great read for slightly older children who are exploring the wonders of reading for themselves.  I love this book and now want to see what else this author has written - and if she hasn't written anything else yet, then I hope she does write more with the same energy and fun of this one.
