Watch Out for the Crocodile
A delightful picture book about a father and daughter's trip into the wilderness, and how children can help parents see the world in a different way. It's the first day of Dad's vacation and they're going camping. It's about time they did something fun, Tora thinks. All Dad does is work, drink coffee, sit at the computer, and talk on his cell phone. He is a very boring father. But now at last they're off to the forest to see some wild animals!
