The Enormous Crocodile Picture Book

A stunning picture book version of Roald Dahl’s hilarious classic, filled with full-size plates of Quentin Blake’s mouthwatering artwork. The Enormous Crocodile is a greedy, grumptious brute who loves to guzzle up little boys and girls. He’s a terrible boaster and very proud of his secret plans and clever tricks, like disguising himself as a seesaw for careless little children to sit on. Crunch! But the other jungle animals have had enough of this foul fiend’s horrid schemes – so they devise a plan to get the better of him, once and for all!

  • I thought this book was so amazing as a child, as it combined all the thigns i loved back then. A little bit of scare, some funniness, and children being eaten. I used to read it with school all the time, because i loved it that much!

    Two crocodiles in a mud pool. One is enourmous and always very hungry, his favourite snack is children! Can he be stopped? Amazing book and very funny.
