“The Selfish Crocodile” by Faustin Charles and Michael Terry

A big selfish crocodile reigns on an African river, threatening all the other animals should they come close to the river.  But one day, the animals hear the crocodile in distress. They draw closer to find out what is the matter…

A beautiful story about bullyish behaviour, making amends and friendship.  It reminds me a little of the tale of the lion and the mouse.

The illustrations of the African fauna and flora are splendid and bright.  Very appealing to children.

My daughters always seem impressed by the fearsome croc and love the surprising help it gets. As a mum, I love the humour, the exotic feel and moral of the story.  The use of the English language flows nicely, allowing my eldest to rad it effortlessly to her little sister.

We borrowed this book from our local library, however it is also available on: Amazon
