    The Enormous Crocodile has a ravenous appetite and he’s on the prowl for his favorite meal juicy children He develops a series of ‘secret plans and clever tricks’ to deceive the children so he can snatch them up but the other animals in the jungle won’t stand for his shenanigans Will this greedy crocodile ever learn his lesson?Roald Dahl is one of our favorite story tellers I can’t believe this is my first time reading The Enormous Crocodile but did we ever enjoy it It’s a short and simple story that’s laugh out loud hilarious The illustrations fit the story perfectly too What a bizarre ending 5

    My four year old loved it Especially the bits where the croc is going to eat and munch all those sweet juicy children NOM NOM NOM NOM NOMI think this is just one of those things natural to all children who already feel like prey with all these nasty adults hanging around All of them want to eat you in a child's eyes It's only natural because they see the adults getting eaten by jobs and spouses and the death of their dreams so why not just imagine getting eaten by crocodiles too? It's NATURALThat being said this croc plays lots of nasty and cruel tricks in order to fill his belly but fortunately he happens to piss off most of the jungle creatures on his way to his playground meal ticketAlas Poor stupid croc And because this is A dahl tale it gets really weird Let's alter reality and turn it into an urban fantasy that winds up as a space opera shall we? Right OnI love BB So does my daughter it seems

    One of my childhood favourites that I was desperate to revisitIt's a simple fun story of an Enormous Crocodile on the hunt for some children to eat he believes each clever trick will prevail only to be foiled by various animals from the jungleOne of the best aspects of this picture book is the wonderful illustrations by uentin BlakeBoth Blake and Dahl fit so seamlessly togetherWhilst the story also features the Roly Polly Bird and Muggle Wump who would later feature in The Twits adds to the enjoyment

    A great re readAnother short tale by the famous children's author Roald Dahl has me eager to review and spread the word This would be an ideal story for the likes of many children including Neo who loves a good bit of humour While lazing around one day in Africa the Enormous Crocodile tells his not so large friend that he yearns for some children to eat He is dismissed and told that there is no way he will be able to score such a delectable treat Off goes the Enormous Crocodile into the African jungles where he encounters many other animals and tells them of his fiendish plan Again he is dismissed but out of a worry for the innocent children From there it is up to the Enormous Crocodile to concoct the perfect plan to get these children into his belly Armed with the knowledge of the Enormous Crocodile's plan the jungle animals do all they can to foil it but will they be too late? A wonderfully amusing read for children and adults alike that keeps the reader on their toes throughoutDahl is a wonderful storyteller even if the tales can sometimes flirt with the edge of the macabre He utilises some of the wonderful things that children know about their surroundings and injects just enough 'spook' to keep children guessing Will the child be saved or has the Enormous Crocodile found a way to win again? Delightfully simple with a uiver full of laughable moments Roald Dahl level of writing is surely missed in modern children's storytellingKudos Mr Dahl for another wonderful story I hope to keep reading a collection of your work and finding new gems about which I can be proudLikehate the review? An ever growing collection of others appears at

    It's the beginning of the year and somehow I find this the right time for some of Roald Dahl's stories Also I have uite some catching up to do since I missed out on them when I was a childThe story is the titular enormous crocodile who is a very nasty and evil croc that likes to eat children The animal lover in me doesn't like that very much because crocs much like sharks have far too bad a reputation which is why many are endangered Nevertheless this story is pretty old for one and I think the main reason the author chose a crocodile was it's outer appearance suitable for many disguises to get close to the unsuspecting children anywayThe story is about bullies and their ways of approaching victims and how watchful eyes and compassion from others can save the day not to mention that the bad croc gets what it deservesAs usual the story had the signature illustrations by uentin Blake only in this version they were coloured in not used to that my other books have the original black and white ones that I actually preferIt is clear that Roald Dahl is one of THE master storytellers for children and I always enjoy his stories very much no matter how short they are

    My year of Roald Dahl is still goingThe Enormous Crocodile loves to eat plump juicy little child and he wants to eat as many as he can But when the other animals in the jungle join together to put an end to this the Enormous Crocodile learns a lesson he won't soon forget
