Holidaying at one of his favourite destinations, Tzar, his brother Ziggy and their very good friend Coco, head out on their usual morning burn up the beach. Dejected that his fun-filled days are coming to an end, he slips back to the beach house to get his ball in the hopes that it might cheer him up. As he tears up the beach to catch his ball before it lands, he sees something moving out of the corner of his eye. Concealed by the thick bushes, the thing shoots out as if jet-propelled and suddenly stops in the middle of the beach. Instinctively, Tzar puts on the brakes, leaving a three-metre skid mark in the soft sand. Pulling up just short of the thing, Tzar is completely frozen in terror. Eyes bulging, he comes face to face with a very, very, very large saltwater crocodile. This book is suitable for children of all ages and is particularly useful as an early childhood learning resource, as a number of life lessons can be gleaned from the story. Comprehensive teacher's notes can be found at the back of book as a lesson plan for school. Catherine has completed her next book in the series, Adventures of Tzar the Paddington Poodle - Mr Claw.
