Synopsis

Everybody knows that crocodiles love water, but this little crocodile is different. He doesn’t like water at all. In fact, he prefers climbing trees! But it can be lonely when you’re the odd one out, so the little crocodile tries his best to change. But being wet isn’t for everyone – and a shiver soon becomes a cold and the cold becomes a sneeze, a very hot sneeze… Could it be that this little crocodile isn’t a crocodile at all? He might just be a DRAGON!

A funny, unique and uplifting story from a debut author-illustrator.
