The Monkey and the Crocodile

A Timeless Tale!

The Monkey and the Crocodile is a delightful hand puppet show created and performed by Justin Cornett. Adapted from a tale in the Panchatantra, one of the earliest collections of fables written in India more than 2500 years ago, it features a tricky monkey, a good-natured crocodile, and his greedy wife.


Performed with beautifully crafted puppets, this show will elicit giggles of glee and gasps of delight from your young audience! (photo by Michael Kreiser)
