Open Very Carefully
A Book with Bite

author: Nick Bromley
illustrator: Nicola O'Byrne

What would you do if you were settling down for a quiet bedtime story and you realized that a crocodile had fallen into your storybook and was not to put too fine a point on it wreaking havoc? Would you slam that book shut and cram it back onto the bookshelf? Or would you be brave enough to peek?

author’s comments:
Nick Bromley works in educational publishing. His collaboration with Nicola O'Byrne and Nosy Crow on the words for Open Very Carefully was his publishing debut.
illustrator’s comments:
Nicola O'Byrne was banned from watching Saturday morning television by her parents, and she has been drawing ever since. She grew up in Singapore surrounded by the vibrant colors of the tropics. She gets most of her ideas for children's books when she should be working on something else, and bases all of her characters on people she knows. She lives in Los Angeles.
