Reviews

"The softly coloured pictures convey all the emotion and complement the feel of the book excellently. A wonderful heart-warming story" * Parents in Touch * "This stunning book follows the story of these two characters and how they teach each other their individual skills. A touching tale of how family ties aren't always so obvious to everyone but can be found right under your nose!" * The Golden Treasury * "This deeply emotional and moving story about love and closeness despite difference is perhaps Deacon's best book yet.Quite superb" * Books for Keeps * "a charming, beautifully illustrated parable about sibling love" -- Amanda Craig * The Times * "This unusual, unsentimental story begins with two white eggs that look companionable and interchangeable. But out of one, a fledgling emerges and, from the other, a baby crocodile. Croc and Bird cannot hope to be brothers but, in Deacon's custody, are soul-mates who forage and huddle together, wings against scales, to keep out the cold. The bird calls its nest 'our home' - impractical for Croc but he does not grumble. A delicate, poignant, exquisitely drawn exploration of affinity with no need for a clumping moral. (2+)" -- Kate Kellaway * Guardian website *
