Crictor is a French story by Tomi Ungerer and it is about how an old friendly woman named Madame Louise Bodot gets a boa constrictor for a pet and the two of them become the best of friends/5. Much of the pleasure of this book has to do with composure.

The mere thought of someone sending a snake through the mail in a O-shaped box sends him into peals of giggles. To make sure it was not a poisonous snake, she went to the zoo. Crictor is a boa constrictor that Mdm. Bodot's son has sent home from Africa.

He bonds with Mdm. Bodot after an initial fright and quickly endears himself to everyone. Soon, he is given an opportunity to foil a burglar who threatens Mdm. Bodot and is revered as a hero. I read this book over and over again until it was in tatters.5/5(5).
