The Crocodile Blue by Coleman Pothemus
The Crocodile Blues is a funny wordless picture book about a man and his bird and their comical adventure dealing with an egg they recently bought. The egg turns out to be a crocodile! Terrified the man and bird run out of the house and find a new place to live. Soon they receive a letter in the mail from the crocodile inviting them to the opening of his new club at their old house. The bright pictures and use of only black,blue, white, and yellow colors really captivates the readers and makes the pictures pop out. Young children will love looking at the pictures and creating a story to go along with them. I just loved this book and found myself looking at the pictures over and over again catching new details.
