Without a shadow of a doubt, the river is the best place for a crocodile, at least this is what the elderly crocodile thinks as the river’s current gently rocks him. But one day, a Mister in a red suit reaches the crocodiles’ river, putting forward a contract and a little bottle of water taken out of the river that he has just bought: he is the new river owner and the crocodile must leave at once. But the elderly crocodile does not agree with him… Gustavo Roldán tells a simple story that reminds us that there are things that you can’t sell nor buy. And as always, he shapes this story through lively dialogues and minimalistic, forceful, dynamic and expressive illustrations.
