When i thought about Esio trot, i forgot that it is a one off book that you are looking for, Esio trot is more for a long term story that continues each day because this is quite a long story.
I havent heard of Selfish Crocodile but i have just googled it and it sounds really good, you could then talk to the children about friendships, healthcare and lots more so it shouldn't be hard to keep the conversation flowing.
I would also look at the Books that Ruth suggested because Ruth has great knowledge and a lot of great ideas and experience.
Let us know which book you read and how it goes.
