One day, Falguni the Fruitseller finds a crocodile in a ditch. “Catch that Crocodile!” cry the terrified townspeople. But who will do it? Probin Policeman with his stick? Can Doctor Dutta do the trick? Will Bhayanak Singh drag it away? Or is the Crocodile here to stay? But then there is another thought: Who says a crocodile should be caught? India’s much-loved nonsense verse writer Anushka Ravishankar and award-winning illustrator Pulak Biswas create a lively tale in verse, which imparts a subtle conservationist message along the way.
Dubbed ‘India’s Dr. Seuss’, Anushka Ravishankar is one of India’s most celebrated children’s authors, and her witty and jubilant tales are internationally acclaimed and widely translated.
