Being a princess is wearisome. Cora would love to spend a day without being trained in something or being bathed. In frustration, Cora writes to her fairy godmother, asking for help. Her fairy godmother sends her a crocodile. Cora then experiences a wonderful day full of climbing trees, picking strawberries and playing in the woods.
Will her parents and nanny learn their lesson from the crocodile and permit Cora to live a less structured life?
