A childhood classic, The Selfish Crocodile is beautifully conceived by Faustin Charles and brought to life by Michael Terry’s wonderful illustrations.
What do you do when a big angry crocodile tells you to stay away from his river? You stay well away! All the animals in the forest are frightened of the cranky crocodile and dare not go anywhere near him or the river until one day the whole forest is woken up by the sound of loud groaning.
The moans were coming from the crocodile who was in a great deal of pain! While the animals stand and watch in fear, it was the tiny mouse who finds a clever solution that makes everyone happy again.
