How to Find Gold

Anna and Crocodile are going to find gold. It is going to be dangerous and difficult.


The first outing of a couple of new picture book heroes, best friends and adventurers.

“As much of a treasure as the gold they find.” 

Kirkus Magazine

“This book is gold, put it on your bookshelf where it can be easily found and treasure it! “

Chris Riddell, Children’s Laureate

“Schwarz’s illustrations are truly lovely, from the simple lines of the characters to the stunning double spreads of the discovery itself. This story celebrates the imagination, play and adventure – children (and adults) will be behind Anna and Crocodile all the way. “

Book Trust

“A satisfying story which could connect cross-curricular links to science, maths and geography.”


“…this book deserves to be a future picture book classic. Schwarz has touched upon genuine picture book genius.”
