Guji-Guji

Publisher: Gecko Press

Review

One day a rather unusual egg rolls into Mother Duck’s nest and it hatches to reveal a baby crocodile. The little creature, named Guji-Guji, is brought up and loved equally alongside Mother Duck’s other children and becomes a perfectly happy ‘crocoduck’, swimming and splashing with his duckling brothers and sisters.

Guji-Guji’s happiness is challenged when he meets some mean older crocodiles who try to persuade him to deliver his feathered family into their clutches. Guji-Guji is torn between love for his family and his duty as a crocodile, but soon realises love is the most important thing of all.

This delightful picturebook comes from the pen of an acclaimed Taiwanese author; Guji-Guji is a charming and expressive character who is sure to capture the hearts of those who read this tale of love and acceptance.
