Solomon Crocodile is back for another adventure! And this time, he's not on his own ...
Catherine Rayner studied illustration at Edinburgh College of Art. She fell in love with the city and still lives there with her husband, her son and a small menagerie of creatures including Shannon the horse, Ena the cat and a goldfish called Sheila, all of whom inspire her work. In 2006 Catherine won the Best New Illustrator Award at the Booktrust Early Years Awards for Augustus and His Smile and in 2009 was awarded the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. Catherine's other titles for Macmillan include the critically acclaimed Solomon Crocodile and the award-winning Smelly Louie.

probably label '"annoying.'" Publishers Weekly, Starred on

startled Solomon is priceless." School Library Journal on Solomon
