Juli and August

Crocodile Overboard
Adventure on the high seas

Eight-year-old August is happily bobbing on an inflatable rubber crocodile in the middle of the sea. He wishes he had some ice cream, but instead he meets Juli, who is nonchalantly paddling around on her float. The float is her home, and it is well stocked with a hammock, a chicken, and a seawater shower. August would gladly join Juli’s crew, but Juli doesn’t let just anyone board her float. August must first prove that he is worthy. Gradually, the two of them become friends, and together they experience the adventures, dangers, and joys of a vagabond life on the high seas.
