The Constitutional Crocodile turns a “cartoon law book” series from a quartet into a set of five. Fuller than any of its predecessors. it cites: 13 constitutional, international and transnational instruments; 13 statutes; 118 cases; 92 books; and 31 articles and reports. It depicts 113 kinds of animal. The book also includes a painting as well as accompanying text by Justice Bokhary’s eldest grandson. Justice Bokhary and his grandson feel that ideas — whether amounting to a mountain or merely a molehill — are worth offering if offered humbly and respectfully as are their ideas here.
 
In this fascinating volume, Mr Justice Kemal Bokhary turns his attention to matters relating to Constitutions. The genial and insightful judge, along with his fabulous Croc, glides effortlessly through the constitutional waters of diverse jurisdictions, mapping out their contours and plumbing their depths for the enlightenment and amusement of lay and law-literate readers alike. He and Croc are ably assisted in this endeavour by a myriad of other animals whose valuable legal opinions are engagingly and colourfully sketched out, as well as by members of the learned judge’s family, whose voices give the text a wonderfully personal touch.
