The story begins with a crocodileegg that lands in a ducks´nest.
Out pops Guji Guji- a small crocodile that becomes raised as a duck.
Mother Duck doesn´t care that Guji is different from the other young ones.
They are her childre
n and she loves them all, just the way they are.
Problems arise when Guji Guji meets two big crocodiles.
They declare that Guji is a bloodthirsty duck-eating crocodile - just like them!
