Staff Reviews

Professional Crocodile is a delightful combination of the mundane or everyday with surprises large and small.

Its elegance and warmth quietly set it apart from its counterparts in contemporary children's literature. 

I am not a big fan of wordless picture books but I found this one to be a nearly perfect "read."

This is a book I yearn to have on my own shelves. 

— Barbette Houser

This is a book in which to immerse yourself. Readers will revel in each gloriously illogical yet everyday detail and will delight in the hilarious twist at the end. Perfection.

— From Hannah DeCamp


Mr. Crocodile loves his job. Every morning he gets up with an alarm. He brushes his teeth. He chooses the right tie to match his outfit, eats a quick slice of toast, and heads off to work on a crowded train. But what exactly is his job? The answer may surprise you! Readers will want to pore over this witty, wordless book again and again, finding new details and fresh stories with every reading.
