Credit is the dominant crocodile on a farm raising these formerly endangered creatures. Years before, he had been secretly adopted by a son of the farm’s owners. Before he outgrew his under-the-bed nest, he came to understand English from conversations his master directed at him. Credit and his friends decide to protect the boys to carry a message back to the West that concern for human and animal populations living together in Africa is primarily an African responsibility. While in the wild together, the boys and the crocodiles form a surprising bond that promises to change how Westerners deal with African wildlife far into the future.


Some early comments from readers of Credit the Crocodile

"Professional and well done. The need for nature’s balance is a point [well made] in this book."


"Credit is an imaginative, enjoyable and informative story. I learned a lot reading it, and I think your target audience would learn even more (while still enjoying it). “I very much liked the clever and imaginative way you described events and feelings. It is a . . . book that engages the reader’s emotions . . . "
