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.

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.
