Faguni the greengrocer sells fresh fruit at the village, but one day she finds a crocodile in the ditch... "Catch that crocodile!" the frightened inhabitants scream. But who is going to do that? Robin the policeman? Dutta the doctor? Or maybe Bhayanak Singh the wrestler? Soon you will discover that the crocodile is simply a disorientated animal, that doesn’t need to be captured but only wishes to go back to its river. Will the crocodile succeed in its aim?... After Una tigre!? Su un albero?! and L’elefante non dimentica!, we present a new tale by Anushka Ravishankar made of sentences running after each other in a rhythmic movement. A tale to be read, recited or played like a ring-a-ring o’roses. The wrinkled and essential illustrations are obtained in a two colours screen print process (green and black) on a special paper, made and printed in India to give to the story the original fragrances and fullness of the paper on which it is written. Anushka Ravishankar is one of the most important Indian children’s books authors. She already published by Corraini Una tigre!? Su un albero?! (with Pulak Biswas in 2003, winner of the Andersen Prize in 2004) and L’elefante non dimentica! (2007). After a 20 years work by several advertising agencies, Pulak Biswas dedicates himself to painting and illustrations of children’s books since 1981. For this book he received a special prize at the Illustration Biennal in Bratislava.
