The story begins with two eggs sat side by sand on the sand. The eggs hatch at the same time, and out of the first egg comes a delicate chick, and out of the second comes a loud crocodile. They are the first thing each other sees and so refer to themselves as 'brother'. We see the different natural instincts of the two animals, when the chick tells the crocodile to open its mouth and "food will come." After a long unsuccessful wait, the crocodile decides to set off to find some food, although he ...more

A beautifully illustrated book and a very lovely story about a bird and a crocodile growing up together, teaching each other how to sing, how to build a nest, how to lie like logs in the water, and climb and dance. They eventually meet other crocodiles and birds, so to discover that they are not brothers after all...Of course the other crocodiles find songs too noisy, and the other birds consider catching buffalo "disgusting"...and so the two creatures seek each other out again. The story has a ...more

This delightful picture book caught my eye in a bookstore in London last week. I was deeply touched by the many messages of belonging and accepting that it explores. What makes a family? Who are our brothers? I found myself pondering ways to use this book in senior high school English classes. Very profound for 32 pages. Sweet but powerful. Worth a read!

What an interesting little story. It is about a crocodile and a bird hatching from eggs side by side, then growing up and changing and learning from each other. Sdaly they learn that they are different, but there is a happy ending. Loved the pictures and the tales and my son and I took turns to read it.

Es un libro súper tierno sobre vínculos familiares yendo más allá de la sangre. Un cocodrilo y un.pajarito nacen juntos, y se van dando cuenta de que son más hermanos entre ellos que con los de sus propias especies.
Es un tema lindo, y el libro es.precioso. Me encanta la técnica que usa Deacon en general, pero aquí me fascinó.

Me lo lei en la feria del libro en monterrey (Desafortunadamente no tenia mucho presupuesto )':), es un amor este libro infantil, muy educativo, puede entenderse de que no necesitan ser de la misma sangre, si no de lo que has vivido con el/ella. En cuanto tenga dinero y lo vea, lo comprare

This book is a lovely book about two brothers, a croc and a bird. Made me feel warm and fuzzy at the end. The children in my class also enjoyed it.
