Book Description:

Because Mother Crocodile tells stories of the past, the little crocodiles choose to believe she is crazy until almost too late they learn otherwise.

Rosa Guy’s evocative translation of, Birago Diop’s Maman-Caiman (Mother Crocodile), story of disobedient young crocodiles can be read as a cautionary tale or as a symbolic retelling of the history of Africa. This Senegalese folktale is the winner of the Coretta Scott King Award, and is an ALA Notable Book. "Visually this book is stunning."—New York Times Book Review. Full color.
