The Christmas Crocodile

The Christmas CrocodileT1871110757
A brand new Christmassy adventure from the team who brought you The Three Little Christmas Pigs and The Forgotten Christmas Elf, The Christmas Crocodile tells the tale of Clara, her young family, and how a local legend was born with a little bit of Christmas Magic...and a Crocodile! During World War 1 Sopwiths, the local aircraft factory, employed thousands of women to help make planes. But once the guns fell silent, the demand for aircraft fell and the women found themselves out of work. Local legend has it that a group of these women didn't want to return to the kitchen sink, so instead, they took the offcuts of wood left over from making the planes and created a pull along toy known as The Kingston Crocodile. The toys were then sold in Bentalls during Christmas 1919, marketed as 'The Newest and Cleverest Mechanical Toy Ever Invented!' The Christmas Crocodile takes this legend and turns it into a magical story for little ones to enjoy. We follow Clara and her young family as they navigate their way into peacetime with a big dollop of Christmas magic, a Crocodile that comes to life and most of all, their love for one another.
