By Mwenye Hadithi
Illustrated by Adrienne Kennaway
A brand-new title about Crocodile in this vibrant series that has been in print for over twenty years.
Long ago on the Great African Plains, it was so dry before the rain came that all the animals were hot, and thirsty, and hungry. All, that is, except Cross Crocodile. This is the story of how Monkey tricked Crocodile into sharing his food with the other animals.
Mwenye Hadithi was born in Nairobi in a rambling brick and wood house surrounded by ten acres. His early life was full of animals. He attended London University, studying languages and foreign literature. When his first attempts at short stories and radio plays were sold immediately, he decided to be the next great African Writer. Adrienne is a great lover of all forms of nature. She lives in the Republic of Ireland.
