Pedro and George by Delphine Perret- ADVISABLE

Perret, Delphine Pedro and George. Antheneum Books for Young Readers, 2015. $17.99. PICTURE BOOK. Can you tell the difference between a crocodile and an alligator? This adorable book will not only entertain you, but will give you information to help differentiate between the two.  Pedro is a crocodile.  George is an alligator.  Everyone confuses George as a crocodile and he is not only hurt by being mislabeled, he is a little fed up that people don’t know the difference. Pedro convinces George that children are to blame for the misunderstanding between the two and together Pedro and George set out to make things right.  This is a fun book with interesting font and black and white colored pages with a little splash of color.  The story is easy to follow and will interest little ones.  The ending of the book has a cute and unexpected twist.  ADVISABLE. Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  Reviewer: SL
