You see there was a time when Crocodile's skin was smooth and silky. And it was so delicate that he had to keep out of the sun or he went all pink. And then he was even more snappy!
So what happened when Crocodile fell asleep in the shade near a herd of dopey Wildebeest . . .?
Brilliantly colourful Tingatinga artwork tells the story of Crocodile's transformation from a smo-o-o-oth, sleek creature to the bumpy-backed animal we know today. Inspired by traditional animal stories from Africa and the Tingatinga artwork of Tanzania, the Tinga Tinga Tales series of picture books features the colourful cast of animals from the television animation and glorious Tingatinga artwork .
