Jeanne has also worked on scripts for TV, including POLLY POCKET and THE SLOW NORRIS, and a pilot TV series for DR XARGLE.

But the mean hyenas laugh at him and tell him to stop dressing like a girly or they’ll go and tell his Dad. The sense of fun is emphasised with the illustrations by Stephanie Laberis which illuminate the narrative and bring the characters to life. It does this with a light touch that captures perfectly the warm and love-centric logic at the heart of the story: 'My friend, why sit there worrying about "What if? By the inky, stinky swamp where no one ever goes, Cliff the little crocodile found a pile of clothes. Jeanne Willis' characteristic rhyming couplets keep things bouncy and moving along at a fast pace, while Stephanie Laberis' illustrations are teeming with riotous colour and splendour.Jeanne Willis’s text is witty and fast-paced, keeping children interested and skillfully navigating them through the story.

It deals with issues children may well come up against and is put together in a way that makes the reader feel looked after and okay, even though things in life may well feel far from okay. Frockodile finds a bag of hidden clothes - a dress, beads, high heeled red shoes - and is captivated by them. There are, however, some very moving lines: “I just feel happier in heels and don’t you LOVE this dress? However Cliff is told to be himself which is the message of the book, to be yourself, and in the end it is proved that he had nothing to be afraid of all along as, of course, his dad accepts him for who he is. Fun story about acceptance of a crocodile who finds some clothes in the swamp and tries them on and is teased by other animals.Other than that, I try my best to draw every day and dream of one day writing and illustrating my own picture book. Next, we are introduced to Dad; he looks like a baddy with a patch over one eye, leather jacket flying as he roars around on his motor bike; none of the other animals dares challenge him. He tries them on and likes to wear them but his big struggle is whether or not to tell his “motorbike-riding, leather-jacket-wearing” dad – “would his father love him if he saw him in a frock? A delicious book by Alison Green with illustrations and a foreword by Axel Scheffler, plus pictures by 38 international illustrators, to celebrate kindness and humankind. Freddy the frog turns out to be a big supporter of Cliff, and the animals unite to devise a show in which Cliff can partake in his new guise.

O meu filho adora usar os meus longos colares, inclusive nos últimos dias teima em sair de casa com um longo colar de bolas coloridas que tenho, numa destas saídas um Sr chegou a fazer um comentário ao meu filho “Um menino com um colar? Mietin jopa voiko kirja tehdä liian ison numeron asiasta sellaiselle lapselle, jolle mekkoja pitävät pojat eivät ole juttu eikä mikään. The author took liberties with bullies who are not native creatures of the swamp but are mean just the same. Jeanne Willis is an award-winning author who has written over 150 books, including The Bog Baby , the Paddington Movie novelisation and Tadpole's Promise . g. with this one mr5 sees nothing wrong with the crocodile in a dress and pearls until the hyenas tell him it’s something not acceptable so the message is kind of lost- and the message actually becomes not everyone will accept you.

It is a story about love, and its overriding message is to be brave – your friends will stand by you, and your parents won’t even care what you wear because they love you unconditionally. And despite the rehearsals going badly wrong, on the night of the performance, Dad just loves the show and declares his son Cliff to be star of the night, whispering to his son, ‘May I have my pearls back now? Wanda the little witch loves school, but she's a little shy - and very nervous about the school magic contest!
