Dr. Sugar Glider travels around the world to help animals (and, on occasion, plants!) with all sorts of problems. Whether it's a crocodile with a sick stomach, a creeped-out krill, a stressed meerkat, or a male praying mantis trying to date, Dr. Glider is ready to offer advice!
From powerhouse duo Jess Keating (Pink Is for Blobfish) and New York Times bestselling illustrator Pete Oswald (The Bad Seed), Eat Your Rocks, Croc! features hilarious stories, charming illustrations, and awesome true facts that will leave young readers enthralled by the real world of the animal kingdom. Robust back matter, featuring a glossary and a list of the featured creatures, makes this the perfect fit for the school curriculum.
Did you know that many animals have to eat rocks in order to digest their food or that there is a species of bird that can stay up in the air for as much as two months without having to land? Yeah me either until I was schooled by the adorable Dr. Sugar Glider who is our main character. All the animals go to the doc for everything and anything they are having problems with and the doc tells them and us what the deal is.
I loved this idea! It is educational but also a story. It was fascinating!
