Author(s): Daniel Postgate
An absolutely delightful adventure on the African plains with the most irresistible, and richest, crocodile in the world. You might have everything your heart desires -- your very own cinema, a luxury swimming pool, hordes of motorbikes, cars and aeroplanes, and a butler called Jenkins. But something could be missing -- and when you spy animals splashing and splosing at a waterhole, you just might begin to get an idea of what it is...
"'There were only a very few rich animals in the world, and the richest by far was a crocodile, ' Postgate begins, introducing his nattily attired reptile hero. The crocodile cocks a toothy satisfied smile at readers, but in truth, he isn't happy--not like the animals he spies through his telescope...The message that money can't buy happiness is as old as the hills, but Postgate makes it bloom anew."
Daniel Postgate is the son of Oliver Postgate, creator of such classics as Ivor the Engine, The Clangers and Noggin the Nog.
