What more exciting adventure could a pair of a friends share than a jaunt to the big city?
Little Green Croc just can't wait to rush off into the bright lights and bustle of the city, but the slightly more worldly-wise Melrose advises caution—the crowds are big; Croc is small; and if they are not careful, he could get lost. Thankfully the friends are reunited for a happy ending. This entertaining urban adventure for the loveable pair is sure to amuse children and parents alike.
