" I, too, would like to have a crocodile impersonate me for a day in exchange for creampuffs.This book is perfect. " said.

" Sweet, short, illustrated novel about a princess who lives a strictly regimented (boring) life until she asks her fairy godmother for a golden, fluffy dog and gets a crocodile - who broadens her outlook and spices up her routine. " said.

" Would be a nice addition to a beginning chapter book section. " said.

" This book is adorable from the pictures to the story! I loved it!!! Kids will love this story of a princess that wants some time to do what she wants. I giggled more than once, and can we talk about those crocodile pictures????? TOOOO CUTE!!!! " said.

" I enjoyed this highly illustrated, quick-read, chapter book! I LOVE crocodiles and outdoor adventures, which are both on display in this short book! An absolutely fun read! " said.

" Very cute! Princess Cora's pet crocodile, a gift from her fairy godmother, dresses up like Cora and pretends to be her so Cora can have some fun, and escape her daily 3 baths, study of economics and calisthenics. My granddaughters loved it. " said.

"First sentence: When Princess Cora was born, her mother and father thought she was as perfect as a snowflake.

Premise/plot: Soon after she was born, Princess Cora's parents stopped thinking she was perfect and began to worry about training her to be the next queen. Cora's training is 24/7. Her nanny has her taking at least three baths a day; the queen has her reading dry, boring books and studying for hours at a time; the king has her skipping ropes for hours so that she'll be the strongest monarch ever. Cora doesn't have it in her to rebel against the system directly, but, she does write her fairy godmother with one little request. She wants a pet. (She really wants a dog, but her note doesn't specify that clearly.) She ends up ripping up the note--which then turns into a butterfly--because she can't go with it. But to her surprise, the fairy godmother responds to her plea for help and does send her a pet. The pet she gets? A crocodile, of course! Will her pet crocodile save her from a life of misery?

My thoughts: I really LOVED this one. It was very silly, but also a lot of fun. It isn't your typical princess story, not really. This princess story has some bite to it. Overall, I'd say it was a very enjoyable early chapter book for young readers. The message is LIVE MORE, worry less. And sometimes that's the exact message parents need to hear. (Because it isn't just kings and queens who worry about training their child to BE SOMETHING.)
" said.

" Princess Cora and the Crocodile is a wonderful twisted fairy tale! Cora is a princess whose family only wants her to be a good ruler: wise, strong, and clean. But her life is so boring! Luckily, a canny crocodile comes along to open everyone's eyes. Charming and whimsical, Schlitz's humor and Floca's illustrations are a marvelous combination. A wonderful successor to Shannon and Dean Hale's Princess in Black series, for the slightly older reader. " said.
