SynopsisThe Selfish Crocodile Jigsaw Book by Faustin Charles
Deep in the forest, a very large and very selfish crocodile shouts, 'Stay away from my river! If you come in my river, I'll eat you all!' All the animals are thirsty and frightened - until one day ...Put the jigsaw puzzles together to discover how the animals solve their snappy dilemma!
Praise for The Selfish Crocodile: 'The tale has a quite wonderful simplicity and a pace and rhythm characteristic of the oral tradition at its best. On the page or in performance, Charles is a master at making every word count for young audiences: this picture book is super storytelling ... Terry's illustrations are an equal delight
Books for Keeps
'The illustrations are wonderfully expressive, and it's a simple tale with a good moral that deserves retelling - night, after night, after night!'
'The Selfish Crocodile Library sees the return of a much-loved character created by Faustin Charles ... Michael Terry's illustrations have instant appeal and are well pitched for the age range with their balance of colour, humour and clarity'
