As Bertie and Croc weaved their way along the yellow brick road Croc began to feel excited. He picked up the pace, as fast as his little legs would allow and Bertie had to practically run to keep up with him. Croc stopped so suddenly Bertie tripped right over him! Huffing and puffing Bertie got … Continue reading Are we home yet?
Bertie was determined to help Croc feel a little less sad. They set off into the town. Bertie pushed Croc up so he could peep out of the bag. It seemed like they were on the hunt for ice-creams.
