Reviews

  • The softly coloured pictures convey all the emotion and complement the feel of the book excellently. A wonderful heart-warming story

    Parents in Touch
  • This stunning book follows the story of these two characters and how they teach each other their individual skills. A touching tale of how family ties aren't always so obvious to everyone but can be found right under your nose!

    The Golden Treasury
  • This deeply emotional and moving story about love and closeness despite difference is perhaps Deacon’s best book yet.Quite superb

    Books for Keeps
  • a charming, beautifully illustrated parable about sibling love

    Amanda Craig, The Times
  • This unusual, unsentimental story begins with two white eggs that look companionable and interchangeable. But out of one, a fledgling emerges and, from the other, a baby crocodile. Croc and Bird cannot hope to be brothers but, in Deacon's custody, are soul-mates who forage and huddle together, wings against scales, to keep out the cold. The bird calls its nest 'our home' – impractical for Croc but he does not grumble. A delicate, poignant, exquisitely drawn exploration of affinity with no need for a clumping moral. (2+)
