"Like many folktales, this is a wonderful book for story time in the library - the kids love seeing the monkey pretending to be deaf in order to save Juan, and the crocodile informing Juan that most kids don't ever have the opportunity to be eaten by a crocodile! It's the kind of book kids ask for again and again. It should still be in print!" said.

"This book is out of print, so I was glad to find it here. It arrived quickly, in protective packaging, and in the condition described. I wanted it to go with a tin wind-up toy I bought as a gift. The toy has the boy sitting on the back of the crocodile, which wiggles and opens and shuts its mouth as it moves. This picture book is a perfect accompaniment and in such good condition that I am not ashamed to give it with the toy gift. Thank you for this service in the age of eBooks." said.
