Mrs Croc wants a better life for herself and her children so Mr Croc needs to make some money – fast! How best to do it? Mr Croc has no intention of working for a living but robbing a bank sounds quite easy. But being a croc who is a crook isn’t as easy as it sounds. Told through words and pictures with speech bubbles to enjoy for shared reading, this is an entertaining story for beginning readers.

Mr. Crookodile by John Bush
Mr. Crocodile needs a job apparently. So says Mrs. Crocodile. But what to do? Luckily, Mr. Crocodile is a croc with imagination. He could be a soccer star - Mr. Soccerdile has a nice ring to it. Or perhaps a cook - Mr. Cookodile sounds splendid. But what would be even easier for a lazy croc would be to turn into Mr. Crookodile and rob a bank!! However, despite a cunning disguise, Mr. Crocodile's plans start to unravel in a very funny way...This comic caper will have you laughing all the way to the bank.
