The Star-faced Crocodile

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

When a banjo-playing bear sees a crocodile in a pool whose face is framed in the reflection of a star, he wants it as a friend.

The crocodile however is afraid that the bear will see he's just an ordinary crocodile, with lots of sharp teeth, and be frightened, so he steals the stars to help him. The wise bear gets the trees to put things right and convince the crocodile he is special.

Gentle humour, a timeless, reassuring story, and ingenious illustrations ensure another Melling classic.
