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.

A fantastically funny book, one of my daughter's favourites! She asks for this book over and over again, and laughs out loud every time we read the page where the crocodile dives into the water and the sneezing page. A simple storyline about a crocodile trying hard to fit in with his brothers and sisters, with a nice twist at the end. The illustrations are gorgeous (in lovely, slightly muted colours, so not as bold and brash as many other children's books) and the character of the crocodile really shines through even though he doesn't speak. We would recommend this book highly!

We love this book. It is charming but unexpected. The little crocodile is scared of swimming in the water, but there is a good reason for his fear.

This story is a family favvorite to be read at bed time. My twins love hearing about the crocodile and his brothers. the ilistratiions are beautiful and fill the whole page. This story is about being different even if you look the same as everyone else and thats its okay not to like the same things as others. th story makes my twins a bit sad to begin with but makes them very happy at the end. this story has also led to many converatons about not liking the same things especially with my two being twins they are sometimes expected to like the same things.

I really loved the look of this book, and thought that my grandson would too, but he got bored rather quickly. Still, I loved it!
