As a parent or grandparent do you read aloud to your children nightly or as often as possible?

Developing an enthusiasm for reading is a guarantee for lifelong interest in books and the written word.

If you couple these habits with a quality book that has a fun loving, cuddly crocodile as the main character then children will enjoy the experience of listening to a story which entertains and educates.

Add an author who uses catchy rhyming text and an illustrator who creates beautiful eye catching pictures that capture the child's imagination, then you are on a winner.

Author, Anthony Buirchell, a retired teacher from West Australia, has developed the character Cric Croc.

He is a lovable crocodile who will enter your home to entertain, have fun and be a role model for good behaviour.

The story is backed by the delightful drawings of Nikki Ball, a single mum and artist who is ready to make an impact on the art scene.

The first book introduces Cric Croc and his family along with all their antics. Future books will have the little fellow on adventures all around the regions of Australia, including Queensland.
