I, Crocodile...by Fred Marcellino. Somewhat of a creative genius.
Crocodile lives in the sewer, where he is quite happy and enjoys his three meals a day, plus snacks.
He is proud of his rich crocodile heritage.
Until Napoleon shows up. 'You know, that French guy who thought he owned the world?'
Incidentally, this is most of what my kids know about Napoleon.
Croc has some great moves and entertains the tourists after Napoleon captures him.
Until they get bored and decide to make him into crocodile pie (all the rage in Cairo).
But he's hungry.
What's a starving crocodile to do?
