alligator（短吻鱷）和 crocodile（鱷魚）有什麼不同？怎麼全世界的小孩都在問啊！？鱷魚Pedro 和短吻鱷 George，受夠了大家老是分不清楚alligator 和crocodile，於是他們聯手出擊，打算要告訴小朋友，如何分辨alligator和crocodile。Pedro帶著兩個三明治、牙刷、梳子出發，經過路人指點，出現在學校…
由《我和巧克力野狼》法國畫家Delphine Perret創作，兩隻檸檬色的動物鱷魚，赫然矗立在黑白線條的畫面上，清楚明白地宣示：「瞧我的！這是我的場子」，但作者另外在小孩和老師的臉上「給點顏色」， 讓讀者小小聚焦在小孩驚訝、嬉笑、純真的表情上，襯托主角的傻氣可愛！
What’s the difference between an alligator and a crocodile? So glad you asked! Fans of Lyle the Crocodile and comic duos like George and Martha will find a new favorite pair in Pedro and George.
Pedro and George are fed up with the children of the world getting them confused. Pedro is a crocodile, and George is an alligator. There’s a difference, you know!
This determined pair decides to go on a mission to prove who’s who, once and for all. Pedro packs two sandwiches, a toothbrush, a comb, and off they go. (The comb, of course, is only for show.) The classroom at the other end of the world is unsurprisingly shocked by their arrival—but after a little learning and a lot of chaos, Pedro and George head back home to their ordinary tasks of sorting toothpicks and repainting their bathrooms, satisfied that they’ve taught an important lesson. Or so they think!
This wry, hilarious story might help you remember the difference between crocodiles and alligators—but it will definitely give you the giggles.
