Publisher's Summary

With perfect comic pacing, Greg Pizzoli introduces us to one funny crocodile who has one big fear: swallowing a watermelon seed. What will he do when his greatest fear is realized? Will vines sprout out his ears? Will his skin turn pink? This crocodile has a wild imagination that kids will love. With bold color and beautiful sense of design, Greg Pizzoli's picture book debut takes this familiar childhood worry and gives us a true gem in the vein of I Want My Hat Back and Not a Box.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that I think I've read this book to my kids a thousand times. It's funny, and the ironic humor is easy for even young toddlers to enjoy. It's a great length. The cute minimalist illustrations are a perfect match for the simple storyline and concise writing. Oh, and there are some good opportunities to make silly noises, which is a big plus for us. There's no real lesson or moral or deeper meaning, it's just a fun book. Honestly, I'll probably read it another thousand times, and I'm fine with that.
