Happy Snappy! A Mr. Croc Book About Feelings

Jo Lodge. Hodder (IPG/Trafalgar Sq., dist.), $6.99 (12p) ISBN 978-0-340-98879-4
Mr. Croc the crocodile demonstrates five emotions and states of being in this board book with flaps. The refrain “Mr. Croc, how do you feel?” appears on each spread, with large flaps revealing his answers. Opening a door-shaped flap reveals a visiting friend (“I feel happy!”), while in the next scene Mr. Croc is seen in a chair reading a book titled Scary Monsters (he’s hiding behind said chair underneath the flap—“I feel scared!”). The chunky aesthetic has a touch of Maisy to it, and a pop-up finale offers a hint of mischievous fun. Up to age 3. (June)
