Jooka saves the day
1st American ed.
Jooka is an unusual crocodile: he has antennas, and smoke comes out of his nose. But like all children, he wants to belong. And life is good among the crocodiles on the banks of the Zimbu River -- until Jooka sneezes fire and wings pop out from under his shirt. What's he to do? He has frightened the crocodiles away. He sets out on a journey and meets Theo, the wise pelican, who recognizes him for what he is -- a dragon! In this innocent and magical tale of growing up, Theo teaches Jooka to embrace his differences and master his abilities. The young dragon flourishes and, in a wholly satisfying ending, returns to his friends just in time to save the day.
