Melrose and Croc are two irresistible new characters from the creator of the popular Blue Kangaroo series, Emma Chichester Clark.
Our endearing duo are thrilled to be taking an exciting trip to town. Little Green Croc just can't wait to rush off into the bright lights and bustle of the city, but the slightly more worldly-wise Melrose advises caution - the crowds are big and Croc is a very small crocodile and if they are not careful, he might end up...LOST!
Thankfully the friends are reunited for a happy ending.
This entertaining urban adventure for the loveable pair is sure to amuse children and parents alike, and shows the dazzling potential of the Melrose and Croc series.
