Rumor has it that Rose’s neighbor, Mr. Wintergarten, has a pet crocodile. Rumor has it he eats children. So when Rose’s ball flies over his fence, she’s scared to retrieve it. But when she bravely sets out to go where no child has gone before, she discovers the startling truth about her neighbor: he’s friendly! Bob Graham’s illustrations add humor and vitality to a story that shows how very deceiving appearances can be.
A simple classic tale, expertly told. * Books For Your Children * Heart-warming. * The Oxford Times * "Bob Graham is in a lass of his own; he is a national treasure." * The Sunday morning Herald *
