I need to find this book. I don't know the title or author. But I do have dim remembrances of the plot.
This was a children's book, with pictures. I read it when I was young.

Summary:
- Two alligators - or crocodiles - are in a house.
- Another alligator or croc comes to visit with a bottle of wine.
- The visitor sits on the couch.
- The couch eats the visitor, leaving only his glasses and possibly a cravat.
- The eaten gator or croc was named Warwick. I think.
- It is also possible that the household gators or crocs had the wine in the first place.
- I do believe that there were the two species in that book - i.e., if there were alligators in the house, then it was a croc that came to visit, and vice versa. But I could be wrong.
- I recall that the pictures were done in lurid, darkly-lit tones. Possibly.
- I have no idea of the actual plot or why they didn't warn him about the couch. Altercation? Fiendish glee?
- Please to note that this was a CHILDREN'S BOOK and therefore was highly appropriate subject matter for impressionable youth. *har*
Therefore, book publishing date: 70s or late 60s, I reckon. Maybe.

Just on the offchance...
