Join best friends Melrose and Croc for a day of sunshine and laughter beside the sea
Little Green Croc is in a bad mood, but Melrose knows that a guessing game and a trip to the seaside will soon have his favorite friend smiling again. This charming picture book is full of sunshine, brightly capturing the warmth of true friendship and highlighting the importance of looking after one another in new situations. Sometimes life seems very dull, but what a difference a bucket and ball, sand and sea, and, most important of all, a very best friend can make.
