The Princess and the Crocodile

By Laura Amy Schlitz

Illustrated by Brian Floca

A Newbery Medallist and a Caldecott Medallist join forces to give an overscheduled princess a day off – and a deliciously wicked crocodile a day on!

Princess Cora is sick of boring lessons. She’s sick of running in circles around the dungeon gym. She’s sick, sick, sick of taking three baths a day. And her parents won’t let her have a dog. But when she writes to her fairy godmother for help, she doesn’t expect that help to come in the form of a crocodile – a crocodile who does not behave properly. With perfectly paced dry comedy, children’s book luminaries Laura Amy Schlitz and Brian Floca send Princess Cora on a delightful outdoor adventure – climbing trees! getting dirty! having fun! – while her alter ego wreaks utter havoc inside the castle, obliging one pair of royal helicopter parents to reconsider their ways.
