  首次創作繪本即獲得各界好評的葛瑞格·皮佐利(Greg Pizzoli),憑藉著大膽的用色與過人的設計感,將許多大人孩提時充滿稚氣與傻氣的憂慮以明亮、輕鬆的方式轉化,小鱷魚多層次的豐富表情更是讓人直呼可愛,是一本大人小孩讀後都會有共鳴的有趣故事。(文/博客來編譯)

With perfect comic pacing, Greg Pizzoli introduces us to one funny crocodile who has one big fear: swallowing a watermelon seed. Will vines sprout out his ears? Will his skin turn pink? This crocodile has a wild imagination that kids will love, and the new board-book format makes this hilarious romp the perfect pick for preschoolers. Praise for The Watermelon Seed
Winner of the 2014 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award "Pizzoli legitimizes childish anxieties but also slyly exaggerates each worry to highlight the humor."
-New York Times
* "It's an expert debut..."
-Publishers Weekly, starred review
* "Children will love this hilarious book...The story has broad appeal, making it a great first purchase." -School Library Journal, starred review
"The illustrations, done in a graphic, flat-color style with simple linework, recall the cheerful stylings of Ed Emberley and Roger Hargreaves. While Pizzoli uses the computer to arrange his compositions, he takes extra care to hand print the pieces. Done in a three-color printing, the silk screen offers a toothiness to the page, giving fruit, animal and emotions more substance." -Kirkus Reviews
"With a sharp graphic sensibility, vibrant design, and adept characterization, Pizzoli spins the simple premise into a sweet confection, ripe with broad humor." -Booklist OnlinePraise for Number One Sam "Pizzoli's zingy ice-pop colors and dramatically varied page compositions take home the blue ribbon." -New York Times * " A] class act." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* " A]nother winner from Pizzoli." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
* "' A] popular choice at storytimes." -School Library Journal "Pizzoli's talent with color, easy-to-read words, and humor is something to behold . . . This one does it all." -Horn Book " T]his will zoom off shelves." -Bulletin of the Center for Children's BooksPraise for Templeton Gets His Wish
"Cheerful entertainment, with just a touch of snark." -Publishers Weekly "The story's exuberance is catching and reassuring . . . Templeton is a celebration of independence, and of our complex feelings about those we love." -Horn Book "Templeton...conveys intense emotion with a few simple lines and very bright colors, as his tale reflects the endearing aspects of a small child's struggles to behave." -Booklist
