Guji Guji

Guji Guji is a "crocoduck"!  He is a crocodile adopted by a duck family.  They love him very much and he loves them.  Their differences do not matter to them.

Then one terrible day three bad crocodiles show up and tell Guji Guji that he must help them since he is a crocodile like them.  They want him to lure the ducks to them so they can eat the ducks!

Guji Guji must think.  Is he really like the bad crocodiles or is he like his duck family?  He comes up with a plan to save the ducks.  The crocodiles run off and the ducks celebrate with Guji Guji. 

Guji Guji was the duck hero of the day!  He continues to live with his duck family.

What does it really mean to be a family?

Guji Guji is a great adoption story!  We adopted our youngest daughters and this book is a great way to start conversations about the subject of family and how different families are mad.  It would make a great gift for a new family!

What kinds of stories do they tell in Taiwan?

Guji Guji was written by Chih-Yuan Chen and first published in Taiwan then translated into English.  So this book also allows us a glimpse into a story from another culture.

Guji Guji can be heard at Storyline Online

And can be purchased for $15.95 at Tonya's Books
