Story Time - The Selfish Crocodile

Happy Monday! Hope you ahd a lovely weekend. It's story time again and today's story is The Selfish Crocodile, written by Faustin Charles. If you would like to listen to the story just click on the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnFdaE8zfJQ&feature=youtu.be

The Selfish Crocodile is all about a group of animals who don't know what to do. Every morning a very large and very snappy crocodile shouts this selfish message: 'Stay away from my river! It's MY river! If you come in my river, I'll eat you all!' The animals are frightened of the crocodile. Even the fish, tadpoles, frogs, crabs and crayfish stay out of the water. Until one day, the creatures are woken by a loud groaning sound which turns out to be the selfish crocodile in a lot of pain, and the smallest of them all, a little mouse, finds a way to solve their snappy dilemma!

Astoundingly bright, bold illustrations bring to life all the wonderful creatures of the forest in a rainbow of colours. The Author: Faustin Charles is a renowned poet and story-teller.
