    Full disclosure: I am very personally attached to this book. I became Fred's literary agent around 1999, a year after I left HarperCollins and opened Pippin Properties, Inc. We closed the deal for Arrivederci Crocodile, the sequel to his bestselling I Crocodile, shortly thereafter . . . at the same time he was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer.

I became Fred's literary agent around 1999, a year after I left HarperCollins and opened Pippin Properties, Inc. We closed the deal for Arrivederci Crocodile, the sequel to his bestselling I Crocodile, shortly thereafter . . . at the same time he was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. I firmly believe that it was the work Fred had to do on Arrivederci that kept him alive for those years after his terrible diagnosis, but still he wasn't able to finish it before he went on. Remarkably, through an amazing series of events that no one could command or order, this sequel fell under the care of Caitlyn Dlouhy at Atheneum and she found the incredible French artist Eric Puybaret, a long-time admirer of Fred Marcellino, and he embraced the idea of finishing the book Fred had started. And as if the universe were sending its blessing . . . the timing worked out so that this sequel will be published exactly 20 years after the original. An exhibition at the NCCIL will go up at publication time. The entire publication story of Arrivederci, Crocodile is a joyful homage to an extraordinary artist and human, Fred Marcellino.
