Synopsis

An uplifting celebration of friendship and a powerful depiction of imaginative play, this is the tale of two thrill-seeking friends on a mission ... a mission to find gold."LET'S FIND GOLD," said Anna. "That would be dangerous and difficult," said Crocodile. "Good!" said Anna. "Let's go!" From the award-winning picture book creator of There are Cats in This Book comes a story of imaginative play and of two friends, Anna and Crocodile, who are on the hunt for gold. But finding gold isn't easy. Oh no! It's dangerous and difficult and requires planning. First, they must master their secret-keeping faces. Then Anna must pick up Crocodile, to be sure she's strong enough to carry all the gold. Finally, they must draw the whole world together, with an X that marks the spot, before sailing off in their boat. What will the two friends discover? Teeming with adventurous spirit and boasting wonderfully funny dialogue, this story introduces two unforgettable characters in a gorgeous, classic new art style from Viviane Schwarz, one of the most innovative and creatively inspired picture book makers of today.
