Baby Crocodile wants to be King of the Nile, but first he must solve a baffling riddle. His search for the answer goes by way of ancient myths and modern mosques to the Great Sphinx, the New Library of Alexandria and some other amazing sights. This crocodile's-eye view of Egypt is illustrated with collage inspired by Egyptian art, and includes brief notes, a map of the Nile and a Pyramid Fortune Game to make and play.
