A Newbery Medalist and a Caldecott Medalist join forces to give an overscheduled princess a day off - and a deliciously wicked crocodile a day on.


Princess Cora is sick of boring lessons. She's sick of running in circles around the dungeon gym. She's sick, sick, sick of taking three baths a day. And her parents won't let her have a dog.


But when she writes to her fairy godmother for help, she doesn't expect that help to come in the form of a crocodile-a crocodile who does not behave properly.


With perfectly paced dry comedy, children's book luminaries Laura Amy Schlitz and Brian Floca send Princess Cora on a delightful outdoor adventure - climbing trees! getting dirty! having fun! - while her alter ego wreaks utter havoc inside the castle, obliging one pair of royal helicopter parents to reconsider their ways.

Darling and classic. Laura Amy Schlitz and Brian Floca are a perfect team. When we are introduced to Princess Cora, she's wheeling under the burden of growing up to be perfect. After a desperate plea to her fairy godmother, she accidentally ends up with a crocodile as a pet, which turns out to be just the remedy for the situation. The crocodile puts on a not-super-convincing Princess Cora costume and gives her a day off, giving Cora a chance to discover how to stand up for herself. Hilarious and inviting, you'll be reading this with a smile on your face the whole time.
