There's a Crocodile In The House

 
By Paul Cookson
Illustrated by Liz Million

'Big sharp teeth
Open mouth
There's a Crocodile
in the house!'

Poems that invite action – joining in, jumping up, sitting very still – and always lots of laughter. Topics range wildly from aliens, to football, robots, pets, dinosaurs, friends, mice in the classroom, and of course that crocodile.

"Contains something for everyone: aliens, football, school trips and pirates! This collection has wide appeal, but would also be great for younger primary school children...packed with humour and contains handy performance tips."
