Croc and Bird

Author: Alexis Deacon

Illustrator: Alexis Deacon


How this book might help: Children living in families to which they are not biologically related will enjoy a story that shows the ties of love to be stronger than the ties of biology.

Croc and Bird both hatch from eggs side-by-side and assume they are brothers. Alone on the beach they learn to look after each other and share each others’ interests. Only when they are grown up and encounter other birds and crocodiles do they realize they are different. Softly drawn and subtly coloured illustrations show Croc and Bird growing up and their final reunion.
