Arrivederci, Crocodile –20 years in the making– has arrived!

Stack of Arrivederci, Crocodile books

It is our indescribable pleasure to announce that Arrivederci, Crocodile, the long-awaited sequel to I, Crocodile has finally arrived. The official publication date was September 10th, 2019. Fred had completed the story, the page layouts, all of the sketches, and half of the finished illustrations when he died in 2001. It seemed more than unlikely that the book would ever see the light of day. But thanks to Holly McGhee of Pippin Properties and Caitlyn Dlouhy of Atheneum Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, and the incredible talent and enthusiasm of the French illustrator Eric Puybaret, here it is!!
