Regular price Sale price £9.99
Amongst the beauty of the Okavango delta in Botswana, Cleo the Crocodile loved having fun with all of his animal friends. That is, until one day Hogan the Hippo, who was supposed to look after Cleo, started to act mean and hurt him.

To keep safe, Cleo has to leave the swamp to find a new home - he's scared and snaps and snarls to keep the other animals away from him so that they can't hurt him like Hogan did.

How can Cleo find a new safe home and start to let others in?

This story has been written to help children aged 5-10 who have experienced trauma to begin conversations around big feelings around hurt, anger and trust.

Press Reviews

  • Louise Michelle Bombèr, Clinical Lead of TouchBase Centre CiC

    The evocative story of Cleo powerfully and accessibly demonstrates how letting others get close is a big ask for children who have experienced relational trauma
  • Healthy Books

    This is a lovely story with lots of beautiful glowing illustrations, and could make a great parable for children who have suffered really serious abuse in their lives. There is a picture to be coloured in which can be photocopied, and some questions that parents and carers can ask when discussing the book.
