Beware of the Crocodile

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Satoshi Kitamura. In sly, understated text, Jenkins discusses crocodiles' teeth, predatory behavior, the care females give their hatchlings, etc. Related details appear in smaller type on many pages, while an appended note adds information about habitats and classification. Kitamura's mixed-media illustrations include a bit of whimsy in extratextual features, such as a nattily dressed crocodile scanning a restaurant menu of favored prey in the back matter. Websites.
