Booklist Reviews 2019 June #1

One evening, Anna and Crocodile are playing in her home when she says, "LET'S GO TO THE MOON!" Crocodile makes the sandwiches, while Anna builds a rocket in her backyard. Soon after takeoff, the friends drift weightlessly and play Crocodiles in Space, which involves catching and eating the sandwich parts that are also floating. They land on the moon and explore its surface. Looking up at the beautiful, shining Earth, they decide to fly home. After returning from their lunar adventure, Anna observes, "the Earth is everywhere! It is huge!" And once again, they set out to explore. The writing is childlike, sensitive, and often witty. The illustrations, created with pencils, crayons, and watercolors, become increasingly intricate and colorful as the imaginative adventure progresses. Crocodile's space helmet, elongated to accommodate his snout, looks both practical and comical. Given the predominance of boys in picture books featuring space travel, it's refreshing to see Anna, with her brown skin, red dress, and can-do spirit, take the lead here. A fine companion volume to Schwarz's How to Find Gold (2016). Preschool-Grade 3. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
