The beloved fable about being yourself, from four-time Caldecott Honor-winner Leo Lionni, is now available in a board book format!

Cornelius isn't like other crocodiles. He likes to walk upright and do tricks that no other crocodile can! But his friends are not impressed. "So what?" they say when he demonstrates standing on his head or hanging from his tail.

Cornelius is a bit disappointed at first...but things aren't always what they seem. And life on the riverbeach is about to undergo some big changes.

Children will see themselves in Cornelius while reading this tale of a crocodile who marches to the beat of his own drum.

About the Author

Leo Lionni, an internationally known designer, illustrator, and graphic artist, was born in Holland and lived in Italy until he came to the United States in 1939. He was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honored posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators’ Lifetime Achievement Award. His picture books are distinguished by their enduring moral themes, graphic simplicity, and brilliant use of collage, and include four Caldecott Honor Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Hailed as “a master of the simple fable” by the Chicago Tribune, he died in 1999 at the age of 89.
