Book Review – Princess Cora and the Crocodile

Princess Cora and the Crocodile by Laura Amy Schlitz; illustrated by Brian Floca

I very much enjoyed this book and I think any reader who likes a good fairy tale will gobble it up! This book would work well as a read aloud in a 1st or 2nd grade classroom – students are sure to giggle at what the crocodile does to the King! Princess Cora is a strong main character and the illustrations by Brian Floca are lovely. Excellent addition to any school or classroom library!

*NOTE: This title has been nominated for the Cybils Award, and I am a first round panelist for the award. There are many nominations and other judges. We are all busy reading and reviewing! My opinions are my own and should not be construed as a sign of inclusion or exclusion on the final short list.
