The Watermelon Seed: 03/19/15
The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli is about a watermelon loving crocodile who is afraid of what will happen if he accidentally swallows a seed. So of course he does and he spends the rest of the book fretting until he realizes nothing is going to happen.
The appeal of this book is Pizzoli's artwork. The crocodile, who bears a striking resemblance to Lyle of Lyle, Lyle Crocodile by Bernard Waber is done in lime green, against the cheery contrast of the bright pink watermelon.
With the large, illustrations and overwrought emotions, this book would make a good addition to a school or library story time session.
