HOW TO LOVE A CROCODILE is an imaginative story about two young brothers, their ethnic grandmother and a wild crocodile.

Two brothers love to play pretend – especially outdoors. One night their parents go out and the fun stops as they are confronted with being watched by their Hispanic grandmother for the first time. At first, they are taken back by her differences and try everything in their power to dissuade her. But she perseveres and draws them in with a magical bedtime story about a remote Amazon village where a beastly crocodile lives.
