The story Guji Guji by Chih-Yuan Chen is about a mother duck who lays three eggs. One day a fourth egg rolls down the hill into her nest and she does not notice. When the eggs hatch, three of them are ducks, but the fourth egg turns out the be a crocodile. This does not change the family though. They continue to learn together and grow up together. One day the little crocodile encounter older crocodiles who tell him they eat ducks. They tell him that they will wait under a bridge for him to bring the ducks, who they will eat. The poor crocodile is not sure what he should do.
The main reason this is a fantasy is because of the personified animals; they talk to each other. Another important reason is because of the outlandish characters. The crocodile becomes the duck’s child; she teaches him how to walk and how to dive.
