Synopsis

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.

About the Author

John Bush, is not a man who enjoys the spotlight. He did not agree to be photographed for this page. Little did we know this would mean hiding under a hat and behind some ridiculous spectacles and a false moustache. The soft toy snake doubling as an exotic hat band is named Crush, after the python in The Warthog’s Tail, and is John’s constant companion when writing stories.
