The Watermelon Seed

Greg Pizzoli

A friendly crocodile’s favorite food is watermelon and he’s hooked on the delicious pink fruit: “Ever since I was a teeny, tiny baby crocodile, it’s been my favorite. CHOMP! SLURP! CHOMP!” When he accidently eats a seed he imagines the worst – vines and watermelon growing inside his tummy! With a loud burp the seed is dislodged and he vows to never ever eat watermelon again. That works - until that next delicious slice is offered to him. Three-color silkscreen illustrations are bright and playful. A delicious debut from author-illustrator Greg Pizzoli. Ages 5-6
