The Almost Animals


Categories: , , , ISBN: 9781910829011


A glorious, quirky tale about a crocogator’s search for acceptance in Elsewhere.

Everyone has heard of crocodiles.

Everyone has also heard of alligators.

But have you heard of a crocogator?

How about an orangupanda or a deerkat?

Or a rhinuffalo?

These, and other marvellously peculiar creatures, are THE AMINALS!

They are animals, they are just a bit mixed up.


Angle is a crocogator. But she has a problem. She doesn’t fit in with the other aminals. The thing is, a crocodile looks rather like an alligator, and an alligator looks rather like a crocodile. So she doesn’t really look like an aminal at all.

Angle decides that she must leave Nowhere, the cliff-side village of the aminals, and venture into Elsewhere. But does Angle belong anywhere? She must encounter aminals, animals, and even a furry boulder to find out…
