" Really interesting fable, very fairy-tale like with a dark side. I enjoyed it and the language in which the book is written is very beautiful and almost lyrical in some ways. " said.

" The illustrations were A+++.. just beautifully done. As to the fable, I don't know what we were to learn exactly. The story plot seemed to go in another direction that we never knew what may have happened, and what did happen didn't make a good ending for a fable. I feel there could be two separate stories. It is a very short fast read, and in the end I just say...ok. " said.

" The language within this book is beautiful, but I wasn't a big fan of the story itself. It seems like it would be a bit scary for small children and I'm not sure if older children would enjoy the style in which it is written.It would be a good addition to a unit on folk tales or legends though and would compliment a discussion on ecosystems as well. " said.

" An odd children's book with even odder illustrations. The illustrator seemed better at drawing wildlife than humans. A little boy wearing tiger skin surfer shorts? A violent crocodile? Just the thing to get a child nightmares. I can't imagine what child would want to read this. " said.

"If there was a BadReads, this book should be on that list. This is a crime against children's literature. Vague, unclear story written sometimes in rhyme, sometimes not. Is it trying to teach a moral? Did the boy's dad get eaten by the crocodile? My son pulled this off the shelf himself at the library. I think he was drawn to the beautiful nature drawings, but the story can be seen as anti-nature since the wildlife is screeching for the boy to go into the pond to get eaten by the crocdile. We struggled to get through this at bedtime tonight. How did this even get published? " said.
