In a river deep in the forest lives a large and very selfish crocodile who claims the river belongs to him alone and warns the other creatures to stay away or he'll eat them. He spends his life alone until one day he gets a toothache. Nobody dares help him until a brave mouse ventures in and pulls the tooth. The crocodile is so grateful that they become good friends, and the crocodile, having discovered the wonders of friendship, invites the other creatures back to the river, where they grow quite fond of him. This lesson in friendship is presented with hilarious, large, bright illustrations, making it perfect for reading aloud to groups.

Sea poem by Faustin Charles( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Sea poem is a poem in five chapters: it is Faustin Charles's tribute to the West Indies, so often characterized as historyless and struggling for cultural identity. For Charles, any cultural void is bridged by the sea; it feeds us and takes life away; the sea is history. The poet draws on the work of Herman Melville whose Moby Dick looms large in Sea Poem; and on Wilson Harris's ideas on West Indian identity which springs from a braiding of the native cultures of the Caribbean with those transported there by sea."--page 4 of cover
