The Enormous Crocodile

Over thirty years on, Roald Dahl’s characteristically witty narrative, and weird and wonderful sense of humour still retains a timeless appeal. A nasty crocodile plans ways of disguising himself so that he can get to gobble up some children, but is repeatedly scuppered to great comic effect by other more friendly, and impressively valiant jungle animals. Dahl’s masterful combination of prose and rhyme is accompanied once more by Quentin Blake’s trademark illustrations, giving this story a classic finish.
