Listen to a sample

an absolutely wonderful story for young children...with a strong, moral message and values presented in a fun and endearing manner. I would have no problem reading this story again and again at bedtime.

My Child

I really enjoyed reading this book to the children and they enjoyed listening. The illustrations are lovely and we spotted something new each time we read it. Although a moral tale, it's not over the top.At each twist and turn they asked questions and we discussed the dilemma faced by Little Croc.

Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy

A lovely story with great morals and values, nicely packaged with interesting, highly detailed and brightly coloured illustrations. I know this is one book that will be pulled out time and time again for bedtime reading ! 4.5 stars out of 5

Madhouse Family Reviews

It's a gorgeous little book published by Red Fox. It is fabulously illustrated with a beautifully written and humorous storyline that covers the issues of honesty, generosity and friendship.

Rosie Scribble

The illustrations are bright and cheerful and the crocodiles are just charming...other themes are introduced with a lightness of touch, such as not giving in to bullying, still being liked and respected by others even when opinions on the best course of action differ, a discussion of what gives an object value, and a rather sensible approach to financial management which could make this a good book to read if you are about to start giving your kids pocket money.
