KIRKUS REVIEW

Bill, the little lime-green crocodile, is back with Pete, his magenta, living-toothbrush bird, in another humorous adventure. This time Ms. Ibis is taking the class on a trip to the Royal Museum to see the Sacred Eye of Isis. "OOOOOOOO," say all the little crocodiles, suitably impressed by the treasures. But Bill and Pete are quick to notice "The Bad Guy" about to steal lite treasure. Working together, they foil the thief; and as a reward all the little crocodiles are sent home on the "Nile Queen." "And so, Mama. that's what happened on our first class trip," says Bill. "My goodness," says Mama. "What an adventure." Indeed. A warm and funny picture-book that should find a wide audience. This is also a visual delight, with simplified shapes, Egyptian motifs, and soft. stucco-like colors.
