Mr. Crocodile pecks away on a typewriter, preparing his list of “Things to Do Tomorrow.” The list includes many of the routine chores of ordinary people until he gets to 4:00 when he plans to catch, cook and eat 5 little pesky monkeys that constantly annoy him by asking him “What Time is it Mr. Crocodile?” The monkeys torment, continually distract him by fooling around and finally soften the croc’s heart. The story ends with him revising his daily planner to reflect his new attitude toward the monkeys. This is a great read-aloud using story in rhyme. The illustrations are hilarious, while at the same time show clocks in prominent points to help children tell time on the hour. (Prepared by: Donna K. Myles, SCASL Picture Book Awards)
