"Dave Derrick has created a fantastic picture book that is entertaining, informative, and laugh out loud funny. When you add in his expertly drawn gestural illustrations, you have, simply, perfection. I wish I had thought of this!"--Chris Van Dusen, illustrator of Kate DiCamillo's Mercy Watson book series
In India the Bengal tiger is the king of the land. But the giant saltwater crocodile is the ruler of the water. What happens when the kids of these fearsome beasts meet?
Let's get ready to rumble!
These animals sing their own version of Anything You Can Scare, I Can Scare Better !
The tiger cub and little croc joust in a witty war of words. In a playful game of one-upmanship, they top each other's boasts of who owns the most frightening canines, claws, and capabilities.
Climbing trees and swimming circles around each other, they are truly well-matched adversaries. But will these terrible tykes discover someone even scarier than them? No elephant is waiting around to find out the answer! Enjoy an eye-opening adventure, illustrated by a veteran DreamWorks Animation artist.
"In the style of an animated children's movie, this endearing book captures the voices of two young jungle tots in a power struggle... Sculptor and animator David Derrick imbues his characters with the spunky personality reminiscent of Simba and other classic movie friends, bringing them to life with colorful, cartoonish drawings and boastful dialogue. This tale of independence and humility will be adored by children ages three to seven." - ForeWord magazine
