Description

Every morning a very large and very snappy crocodile shouts this selfish message: 'Stay away from my river! It's MY river! If you come in my river, I'll eat you all!' The animals in the forest don't know what to do, until one day the smallest of them all, a little mouse, finds a way to solve their snappy dilemma. Astoundingly bright, bold illustrations bring to life all the wonderful creatures of the forest in a rainbow of colours, in this classic contemporary story. The other animals we meet in this wonderful collection are a rhino who hates his horns, a giraffe who feels isolated by his height and Godfrey, a very gossipy parrot who likes nothing better than passing on a rumour and stirring up some trouble!show more
