AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An enthralling crocodile story set in Northern Australia for small children. Written and illustrated by an Indigenous father from North Queensland. Full colour illustrations reflect the atmosphere and adventure of the bush in its changing moods. The story is in the classic style of "are you my mother?" but with an important difference, showing crocodiles as real animals in their own environment.'
