Bought this as a gift to a kid, but after reading it I was wondering why its labelled just a kid's book.It chronicles herpetologist Brady Barr's dibbly-dobbly croc-catching expeditions in Tanzania, South Africa, Uganda and Costa Rica narrated comically with vivid pictures and catchy croc-facts.The best part was his implementation of croc-catching ideas from elementary school children.A good light read.

This one was great! Livy and I learned so much about crocodiles, found lots of interesting countries on the map, and enjoyed the crazy stunts of the croc scientist. We're definitely keeping going on this series.

Science/crocodiles (high-interest, low reading-level) Yes! this is exactly the kind of book we need to get more kids reading (and liking it) and to get them interested in science. Thank you, NatGeo Kids, Brady Barr and Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld.

Yeah, this one is really exciting and on the edge of your seat! And it's funny too--a man impersonating a crocodile and then having one try to be friends with him. Can't help but love it!

I read this aloud to my kids and enjoyed it as much as they did. I would like to read a longer book with more details about these stories.
