The Princess and the Crocodile


Princess Cora leads a repetitious, overly monitored life of discipline in ‘The Princess and the Crocodile‘. From three daily baths, there are lessons with her mother, the Queen. to the basement with the King. There she runs around the gym in circles and skip to five hundred, while the King consults his gold watch.

Princess Cora is exhausted and overwhelmed. There is no way her parents will let her have a dog or let her explore and wonder. Could her Fairy Godmother help? She wouldn’t send a Crocodile, who likes to bite but can be bribed with cream puffs?

This is a clever, entrancing tale by two capable, imaginative, award-winning storywriters. We look forward to our readers discovering ‘The Princess and the Crocodile‘.
