Krindlekrax

There are plenty of weird and wonderful characters who live on Lizard Street. The hero of our story is Ruskin Splinter. But to be honest, Ruskin is a very unlikely hero. Small and thin, with knock-knees, thick glasses, a squeaky voice, no one at Ruskin’s school believes he’s capable of anything – all except for Ruskin’s only friend Corky, the school caretaker.

Ruskin is therefore delighted when Corky tells him the terrifying story of Krindlekrax: the giant crocodile who lives beneath their town’s streets. Finally, a chance to prove himself! But can Ruskin really save the day?

This witty, off-the-wall story is a classic rip-roaring adventure, from award-winning author Philip Ridley.
