Crocodile Cake

Illustrated by Chris Nixon and written by Palo Morgan


Take a slice, a great big slice, of this quirky and colourful picture book.

Written in fast-paced, catchy verse, Crocodile Cake is about a little girl who bakes a very dangerous cake — the kind you have to eat before it eats you.

‘The story is meant to be read aloud; the rhythm is fabulous and there is a chorus for joining in. The illustrations, and there are lots of them, enhance the text … This book will be read again and again.’ Magpies
