The Enormous Crocodile

Yikes! The Enormous Crocodile is the greediest creature in the whole jungle – and he’s determined to eat a nice juicy child for lunch! He’s a terrible boaster and very proud of his secret plans and clever tricks, like disguising himself as a seesaw and a picnic bench for careless little children to sit on. Crunch! Can the other jungle animals stop the cunning crocodile’s sneaky scheme and teach him a lesson he’ll never forget? This classic comic tale of snapping teeth and sharp wits is stuffed with Quentin Blake’s mouth-watering artwork!

    A great book. Loved it and quite funny….... Also liked the talking animals LOL LAUGH OUT LOUD. He he…............ I’ve never seen a crocodile in my life-well one! but the crocodile was not that big.

    It was a baby and I thought when we saw it, it would cute but it the crocodile was looked AWFUL! (no offense)
    Oh but it was a great book and it linked with THE TWITS. Roly- Poly bird and Muggle wump.

    I’ll love to read it again. If I could give a vote out of ten in my opinion it would be 9/10! That is great but I like bad endings, well good ending when he learns his/her lesson but something actually to happen to innocent children to feed the crocodile belly and he swallows his/her whole and they cut the crocodile in half and out pops the child who had been eaten or something like that.

    That’s the story I like. He/her thinks they had succeeded with something but the others get their revenge. I want it to be a little more frantic if you know what I mean. (only in my opinion)
