selfish crocodile.jpg

In a river deep in the forest, there lived a large crocodile. He was a very selfish crocodile. He didn't

want any other creature to drink or bathe in the river. He thought it was HIS river.

Every day he shouted to the creatures of the forest, "Stay away from the river! It's MY river! And if

you come into my river, I'll eat you up!"

.....but one day.......the crocodile himself was in pain. He was lying on his big back, holding his

swollen jaw, and crying real tears.

.....Will anyone help him? Read the book to find out.
