Every morning a very large and very snappy crocodile shouts this selfish message: 'Stay away from my river! It's MY river! If you come in my river, I'll eat you all!' The animals in the forest don't know what to do, until one day the smallest of them all, a little mouse, finds a way to solve their snappy dilemma. Astoundingly bright, bold illustrations bring to life all the wonderful creatures of the forest in a rainbow of colours, in this classic contemporary story. The other animals we meet in this wonderful collection are a rhino who hates his horns, a giraffe who feels isolated by his height and Godfrey, a very gossipy parrot who likes nothing better than passing on a rumour and stirring up some trouble!

In a river deep in the forest lives a large and very selfish crocodile who claims the river belongs to him alone and warns the other creatures to stay away or he'll eat them. He spends his life alone until one day he gets a toothache. Nobody dares help him until a brave mouse ventures in and pulls the tooth. The crocodile is so grateful that they become good friends, and the crocodile, having discovered the wonders of friendship, invites the other creatures back to the river, where they grow quite fond of him. This lesson in friendship is presented with hilarious, large, bright illustrations, making it perfect for reading aloud to groups. Helen Rosenberg
