Adventure stories full of the sights, sounds and smells of Africa from best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith. When Akimbo is offered the chance to help tag baby crocodiles, he is very excited. John the Crocodile man wants to keep an eye on the latest batch of crocodiles, and Akimbo is keen to learn more about the dangerous creatures. Then John is attacked by an angry croc, and Akimbo has to use all his courage to save him! Alexander McCall Smith's animal stories have earned their place as truly classic children's stories.
