The Lovereading4Kids comment

Little Croc is a delightful new character from the bestselling creator of Fergus. Like most toddlers they can be annoying to others and Little Croc is always getting into trouble with the other animals until he sees that making friends rather than being annoying is a much more fun thing to do. Be sure to check out Fergus In The Park from the same author.


Little Croc and Bird by Tony Maddox

Little Croc's mum and dad are always telling him to behave and play nicely. But Little Croc doesn't listen and soon his meanness drives all the other animals away. It takes a game of hide and seek to make Little Croc realize that playing alone is no fun. With the help of Bird, Little Croc learns to be nice and soon the other animals are playing with him again.
