The 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!'
Practical Parenting

'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'
The Bookseller
