More than 40 fresh and fun rhymes inspired by traditional nursery rhymes are collected in this engaging compendium. Each rhyme is accompanied by charming illustrations of the Selfish Crocodile, who learns along the way that sharing with friends can be more fun than being selfish. Faustin Charles reads each of his works aloud in the accompanying audio CD that includes lots of fun animal sounds and noises, making this a perfect resource for read-alongs and early readers.

Faustin Charles is a noted poet and the author of several children’s books, among them A Caribbean Counting Book, Once Upon an Animal, and The Selfish Crocodile. Michael Terry is the author of Rhino’s Horns and Little Hotchpotch, has provided illustrations for numerous children’s books, including The Gossipy Parrot, The Selfish Crocodile, and Ouch!From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2—Charles uses characters from his picture book The Selfish Crocodile (Little Tiger, 1999) to offer new versions of traditional rhymes. "Three brave mice, three brave mice,/See how they run, see how they run;/They all ran after the crocodile,/Who gave them a hug and a toothy smile...." Lions, giraffes, wild pigs, monkeys, and other animals appear in the rhymes. Terry's bright, amusing illustrations add plenty of energy. Even the spread of the crocodile's "teeth, teeth shining bright" isn't scary. On the accompanying CD, the author recites or sings, with a few jungle sound effects to spice up the presentation. With so many nursery-rhyme collections available, this one need not go to the top of a purchase list unless Charles's picture book is popular.—Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato END
