A charming and imaginative story in the bestselling If I Had a . . . series, which imagines life with a crocodile as a pet.
There’s more to a crocodile than its scaly skin and scary teeth—they stay cool under pressure (in part because they can’t sweat) and on a rainy day they love nothing more than a fast game of Snap!
In this humorous, energetically rhyming tale, a little girl experiences exactly what life would be like with a wild creature for a pet. The latest in the bestselling IfI Had a . . . series, If I Had a Crocodile celebrates the fun of having a sassy, snappy pet.
