Format: Hardcover

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4

Genre: Adventure

What did you like about the book? Croc and Turtle are friends. Croc wants to demonstrate how great he is at things to impress Turtle. The problem is, every time he does, another animal comes along and bests Croc! Elephant is stronger, Rabbit can jump higher. This is very discouraging to Croc. After much consoling, Croc and Turtle learn they are the best at being friends with one another. Bright, anthropomorphized animal illustrations move the plot along with action and silliness.
