Celebrate the imagination—and the love between father and son—with this new board book edition of the fun, rhyming, and totally original story. On a hot summer's day, a young boy playfully sets out on a “crocodaddy hunt” in the lake. Following the creature's shadow, dark and wet, he's soon taking a wild ride on the grinning croc's back. And when they leave the water, something wonderful happens: Crocodaddy transforms into…just DADDY. Bright, energetic illustrations (complete with wily crocodile in Dad's swim trunks) highlight the story's humor and warmth.  

Kim Norman has been a singer, songwriter, artist, and comedic actress. Her picture books include Ten on the Sled (Sterling, 2010), Crocodaddy (Sterling, 2009), and Jack of All Tails (Dutton, 2007). Kim lives in Smithfield, VA. Learn more about her at
