Kornei Chukovsky was the father of modern Russian juvenile literature. His most famous work "Krokodil", illustrated by the artist RE-MI (Nikolai Remizov), originally appeared in the periodical Niva in 1917 and was published in book form in 1919. Because of its satirical nature, the poem soon ran into problems with the censors and for a time was banned. This modified version was then published in Berlin by the Russian publishing house Epokha.
