The Crocodile and the Dentist

Written and Illustrated by Taro Gomi

The Crocodile and the Dentist is one of the Publisher’s Weekly best of 2018 books. It is a very simple look at a dentist visit from the side of the crocodile and also from the dentist. Each feels the same way- Must I? I’m scared. I must be brave.

It is very cute with a great zing at the end. The pictures are very bold and bright. All kids can relate to the crocodile, and it also makes you feel compassion for the dentist. Kids will love this.
