Overview

All of the animals are afraid of the Selfish Crocodile - he never let's them into his river, and he's always so snappy!

And so when the Selfish Crocodile finds himself in terrible pain, no-one wants to help him - after all, what if he gobbles them up? But, to everyone's surprise, there is one animal in the forest who is willing to help . . .

A brilliant tale of friendship, The Selfish Crocodile has become a picture book classic.
