Description

A comic caper that will have you laughing all the way to the bank from John Bush and Korky Paul. Perfect for children learning to read.


Mr Crocodile needs a job. So says Mrs Crocodile. But what to do? Luckily, Mr. Crocodile is a croc with imagination. He could be a soccer star - Mr Soccerdile has a nice ring to it. Or perhaps a cook - Mr Cookodile sounds splendid. But what would be even easier for a lazy croc would be to turn into Mr Crookodile and rob a bank! However, despite a cunning disguise, Mr. Crocodile's plans start to unravel in a very funny way...
