Little Doctor is known far and wide as a crocodile whisperer. The animals come from near and far to have her treat them. And as she does, she admires their thick armor and enormous jaws. She wishes that she could be as strong and fearless! One day Little Doctor receives a visit from the largest crocodile of all, Big Mean. But surprisingly--and frustratingly--Big Mean won't open her mouth to tell Little Doctor what's wrong. Instead, mouth clamped shut, she watches the little doctor, who returns to tend to her other patients. While she works, Little Doctor hatches a plan to get a thermometer into Big Mean's mouth. But things go awry, and Little Doctor falls right into Big Mean's jaws! And there she sees the problem: Big Mean's hatchlings are hidden away in their mother's mouth, tangled in plastic! With the hatchlings freed, Big Mean pays Little Doctor with a story--a story of a truly strong and fearless beast called Little Doctor. In exquisite watercolor paintings, Sophie Gilmore depicts the charming animal world of Little Doctor with the delicacy of a vintage botanical painting.
