Description

A lively, humorous story about a crocodile called Ennui and the legendary environmentalist and conservationist Steve Irwin, set in the Northern Territory wetlands of the Australia Kakadu, a world heritage national park. Ennui, as the name implies, develops a problem working for Steve in the tourist industry, but when Ennui discovers a latent talent as a boatbuilder extraordinaire, the issue is not only sorted out to everyone’s satisfaction, but a wonderfully lucrative and mutually rewarding business relationship develops. A story that reminds children not to waste their talents, or undervalue themselves. Expressed poetically through unique Australian slang, this tale will encourage children to believe in themselves, be true to their own identity.
