Island Book Nook to host author presentation

By Staff | Dec 30, 2011

Carol Lincoln has published a children’s picture book about the crocodile that died on Sanibel two years ago.

“After I went to the memorial service, I decided that I wanted children to know the story,” she said.

The Strange Tale of the Determined Crocodile came out in October 2011. Local artist Randon Edy, a steadfast supporter of Sanibel wildlife, provided the illustrations for the book.

Lincoln was a school librarian for many years at Moharimet Elementary School in Madbury N.H. The school is part of the Oyster River School district and next to the University of New Hampshire.

She has prepared about a hundred author visits for the students, as well as countless story times for them. In addition, Lincoln was a library director of a small public library, Newmarket (N.H.) Public Library and a small college library (McIntosh College Library).

Lincoln will be signing books from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 4 at The Island Book Nook, 2330 Palm Ridge Road. Plan to stop in and pick up a copy of The Strange Tale of the Determined Crocodile, the story about our beloved crocodile, WILMA.
