Picture Book: Crictor

This classic picturebook was out of print for several years, and we're very glad it's back! Crictor is the story of Madame Louise Boodot, a french schoolteacher who receives a surprising present from her Herpetologist son!
Of course, Crictor is a giant boa constrictor, and he becomes Madame's special friend and pet. Kids will love how Crictor goes to school with Madame, and learns how to make letters and numbers with his body! But there's a robber in town, and Crictor might just have to do something heroic to keep Madame safe.
This book makes a lovely tell-aloud tale, as well as being a fantastic picture book. A fun read for older kids too.
