Deep in the forest, by the banks of a great river, lived a large crocodile. He was a very selfish crocodile and he wouldn’t share this river with any of the other creatures. He thought it was HIS river! So, the animals stayed away.

But, one day there was a terrible scream – the crocodile had a toothache. Nobody dared to help him, until a brave little mouse appeared, and found a clever way to solve this snappy dilemma.

Based on the best-selling children’s book by Faustin Charles and Mike Terry. This is a funny, heart-warming take with a very happy ending which reminds us all that the smallest act of kindness often has the greatest impact.

Blunderbus use song, music and a host of handcrafted puppets to bring this watery adventure to life. This is a must-see for 3-7 year olds, their grown-up’s, and of course, anybody with a pet crocodile.
