Croc and Bird

By Alexis Deacon 

Croc and Bird hatch out from eggs lying side by side on the sand and assume that they are brothers. They nurture and shelter each other but the day comes when they realise that they are not brothers after all. Will they follow nature’s course or allow the behaviour they have learned from each other and the interdependency of their early lives to influence what happens? A touching portrayal that would complement other picture books about identity.
