About this item
Told in two voices that are graphically rendered in different colors, My Little Crocodileis about a chance meeting between a crocodile and what he believes to be a "baby crocodile." This meeting profoundly changes their lives, which then continue along their own individual paths, though the bonds of love and intimacy remain. The story thus plays with ideas about the relationship between the parent and the child as well as with ideas of surprise and randomness and how deeply chance affects us throughout our lives.
