The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water

Crocodiles love water, don’t they? But this cute little croc is different. He doesn’t like it at all. In fact, he prefers climbing trees! But feeling like the odd one out can be a bit lonely. Why can’t he be like everyone else? So the little crocodile tries to blend in. He shivers in the river. He splashes and he sploshes – and he doesn’t enjoy it at all! Being wet just isn’t his style. Shiver! Brrrr! Achoo! Oh – what a HOT sneeze! Could it be that this little crocodile isn’t a croc at all?
