A Croc Called Capone

by Barry Jonsberg
A free trip to the Northern Territory! Sounds good, thinks Marcus (“Mucus” to his sister Rose). But when his best friend Dylan joins the family holiday, mayhem is not far away. Marcus and Dylan’s trip also involves Blacky, a surly, farting dog with attitude, who can hear Marcus think, plus a monster saltwater crocodile who’d rather chomp on a human for dinner than have a civilised conversation. Then there’s the small matter of a giant big-game hunter on a collision course with our heroes. And will Marcus be any match for his mean older sister Rose and her best friend Cy Ob Han?
