When I first moved from far away Argentina to your beautiful Croatia, I had to start afresh with everything. Like every child I had to learn how to speak a new language, sing new songs, dance to new rhythms. And like every other child I came to like Little Juju. Juju was the first song I learned in Croatian and just like a little child, I used to sing it for years without knowing what the song was about and what it really meant. I was surprised when a very serious person told me ‘a lovely song, a pity it is so horrible’. Firstly I was surprised that such a merry tune would be telling a horrible story in which the protagonist encounters a crocodile and secondly, I asked myself, what a country that was where the most popular song told such a horrible story.

Then I found out that a horrible story can be told in an amusing and exciting way and that in the end your fears would not be horrible at all, and, besides, how wise was  a country to sing about a story on fears and how to face and fight them.
