In Crocs at Work, the team that created the children’s Crocodiles Play! and Crocodiles Say… tackle the world of work—again with laughs and poetry.

“Clear, cheerful colors, a sunshiny atmosphere and a pleasant, wicked ebullience make a perfect story-time choice.” —Toronto Star

“Reminiscent in tone of the 1958 classic What Do You Say, Dear? by Sesyle Joslin and Maurice Sendak, this happy double message gives child readers plenty of freedom to create their own alliances.” —Quill & Quire

School Library Journal
"This is an amusing rhyming book about enjoying one's job."
Kirkus Reviews
"An entirely nonserious, delightfully welcome look at the world of work."
