There were only a very few rich animals in the world, and the richest by far was a crocodile. He lived in a crumbly old mansion in Africa and had everything his heart desired—a movie theater, a beautiful garden, loads of cars and airplanes, a library stuffed with books, a loyal servant. But still, there seemed to be something missing. Then one day, as he looks out at the African plains, he sees a group of animals in a watering hole having loads of fun. It’s then that the crocodile begins to realize what’s missing. Packed with exotic animals and vibrant artwork, this is a wonderfully entertaining tale about friendship and the adventure of living.
