The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli

My Bookish Itinerary: Cutie Pie's Shelf Children's Book Review

Title: The Watermelon Seed

Author: Greg Pizzoli
Length: 40 pages
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Classification: Children's Book
Release Date: May 2013

With perfect comic pacing, Greg Pizzoli introduces us to one funny crocodile who has one big fear: swallowing a watermelon seed. What will he do when his greatest fear is realized? Will vines sprout out his ears? Will his skin turn pink? This crocodile has a wild imagination that kids will love. With bold color and beautiful sense of design, Greg Pizzoli's picture book debut takes this familiar childhood worry and gives us a true gem in the vein of I Want My Hat Back and Not a Box.

I picked this one up from the library because my girls love eating watermelon and thought that they would enjoy this book.
Overall, I think The Watermelon Seed is a very cute and funny story. I really enjoyed reading this story to my girls. Though I do think my younger daughter enjoyed the story a lot more than her older sister. She was laughed so much while I was reading it. My older daughter thought the story was a tad over-dramatic. (Which in my opinion is part of the reason the story is so funny!)
Both girls seemed to enjoy the story though. They both laughed. (Cutie Pie #2 was almost hysterical.)

I even ended up reading this book multiple times with her because she loved it so much.

I think The Watermelon Seed is a cute, fun, and very entertaining story that will make you laugh. I definitely recommend checking it out!
