Bibliophile's Corner

Princess Cora and the Crocodile
Written by Laura Amy Schlitz
Illustrated by Brian Floca

Flap Copy Description:
A Newbery Medalist and a Caldecott Medalist join forces to give an over scheduled princess a day off and a 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 help to come in the form of a crocodile, a crocodile who does not behave properly.

My Thoughts:
The beautiful writing of Ms. Schlitz is brilliantly brought to life by Mr. Floca's whimsical illustrations, making Princess Cora and the Crocodile a must-read for children! I loved how the princess executed her mischievous plan to change the hearts of her parents (and nanny) with a bit of help from a clever crocodile. I highly recommend this illustrated chapter book to readers from the ages of six to twelve!
