For the past six years I’ve made a calendar which I sell to raise money for the ACLU.
This year’s image includes a crocodockle snapping at the American Eagle.
I have never seen a crocodile in real life, but they populate my imagination.
I call mine crocodockles because they are inaccurate representations of the noble lizard Crocodylus.
Crocodockles can be scary
but they like to go to parties.
They can help point the way
or lie below the surface unhelpfully.
Some crocodockles like eating chickens
and some crocodockles prefer the taste of words.
If you would like to order a crocodilian calendar please click here. They cost $15 each: all $15 goes to the ACLU.
Hurry before they are all snapped up!
p.s. I am not the only crocodile enthusiast. Here is a link to a wonderful blog post by Andrea Immel about crocodiles in children’s books.
What Crocodiles Eat for Dinner Besides Clocks, Pirate Captains, and Elephants’ Children
No link to the calendar purchase page, Julie. I’m sure I can find it but you should fix the link. Love this calendar!
Thanks for the heads-up, Tina. I just fixed it!
Absolutely, spectacularly delightful and wondrous!!!!!
Thank you for ALL the images you create and the donations you make to very important things.
Now, these are some fantastic crocs, alone or surrounded in splendor.
Thanks ,Wendy. These are the kind of crocs that play with poodles as opposed to eating them.
Julie, I’m thrilled that a relative of The Hungry Crocodile has a starring role on your 2023 ACLU calendar. I ordered fast this year because last year the calendars were sold out before I ordered mine. And I’m looking forward to ordering ZigZag with its featured crocodockle as soon as you share the info. Congratulations!
Thank you Sister Meg!!!
What a fun post. Makes me smile ear to ear…
