    One thought on “The Enormous Crocodile”

    1. 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 NOM.I 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 [...]

    2. 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 quite some catching up to do since I missed out on them when I was a child.The 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 [...]

    3. My year of Roald Dahl is still going!The 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.

    4. Another 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 jungl [...]

    5. “It’s luscious, it’s super,It’s muschious, it’s duper,It’s better than rotten old fish. You mash it and munch it,You chew it and crunch it!It’s lovely to hear it go squish!”[image error]The Enormous Crocodile is on a mission… to find some children to munch. He tells all of his jungle friends his plans and they think he’s an awful mean crocodile so they’re constantly thwarting his plans of munching. The Enormous Crocodile gets more and more frustrated as he gets more and mor [...]

    6. This big crocodile is hungry for some children and has the perfect plan to get them - or does he? He makes several other jungle animals very angry with him and they attempt to thwart his child-eating ways. This just goes to show, if you are planning something evil, donotmonologue!

    7. That was a funny one, the enormous crocodile isn't as clever as he thought he was :D he should've kept his mouth shut instead of bragging about his plans, so he ended up barbecued :D

    8. The Enormous Croc is not as smart as he thinks he is. He has all kinds of clever plans to catch a juicy child or two for his lunch. But on his way to the town, he's stupid enough to tell every creature he meets where he is going and why. So when he tries all his ruses to fool the children, Humpy-Rumpy the Hippo and Trunky the Elephant and Muggle-Wump the Monkey and the Roly-Poly Bird rush to the rescue and foil his plans before he can snatch any kids. Finally, Trunky winds him up and sends him r [...]

    9. I don't think I've ever read anything by Roald Dahl that I didn't like. I am thrilled that my soon to be 4 year old daughter is now old enough to hear his stories at bedtime. We started with the Enormous Crocodile because it was short, illustrated, and new to us (the parents). It was a great read-aloud book! Our daughter wanted to know what would happen next and really enjoyed the story of the wicked crocodile on the hunt to eat up small children. A solid introduction to quirky stories and great [...]

    10. My middle daughter recommended I read this book, and I can see why. The jumble of entertaining adjectives makes this great fun for an imaginative 7-year-old – and a less imaginative 35-year-old. The end was a little abrupt, but overall this is classic Dahl: fun, witty and a little dangerous.

    11. The Enormous Crocodile is not a nice fellow as he has a nasty plan up his sleeve, and will NOT let any other animal in his way to stop him from gobbling up a nice, juicy fat child. Roald Dahl, with the help of Quentin Blake, transports the reader to the depths of the jungle, using a brilliant choice of words, illustrations and quirky characters which allows you to be entranced in this story. This book is great to be read to children or quietly to yourself, and can teach young readers the importa [...]

    12. The story grew repetitive after awhile as the crocodile's plans and tricks always get thwarted at the last minute, and that last scene is a real killer (literally!), but Stephen Fry's exuberant narration definitely made it worth sitting through.

    13. what a lovely story. when i am reading this i can imagine children eyes wide open with excitement. and how clever trick from enormous crocodile indeed.

    14. The story was the usual greedy animal, using tricks to fill its stomach. The various animals at the beginning added some fun, but after that I found the tricks too much unrealistic to be really pleasant. Blake's art was fun to follow, however there were too many white children pictured for a book set in Africa.

    15. The Enormous Crocodile is a somewhat determined villain. But he isn’t very clever. His sole aim is to consume a juicy child, but he makes the mistake of sharing his mission with all of his jungle companions. To the children’s vantage, the other characters in the story have a heart; they make it their mission to stop him. Roald Dahl's 'The Enormous Crocodile' is scary, funny, and moral; three very important ingredients for a good children's book. My initial reaction to reading this book as an [...]

    16. I will never forget the picture of the crocodile dressing up as a palm tree. It had me laughing for hours!

    17. One of my most beloved books as a child. The one I made my parents read over and over again. Must have the Quentin Blake illustrations, too!

    18. B.R.A.CE. 2017 ένα βιβλίο που θα έπρεπε να έχεις διαβάσει στο σχολείοΚαθώς το διάβαζα σκεφτόμουν πόσο καλογραμμένο είναι και πόσο γνήσια παιδικό και εκπαιδευτικό.

    19. Lucu juga buku ini, beneran deh kalo udah sok pintar, nih buaya malah gagal semua itu rencananyakarena lapar dan ingin makan kenyang ( dengan sasaran tiga anak kecil ). Maka pergilah si Buaya Raksasa ini dengan melintasi hutan hingga sampai ke kota yang memang banyak anak-anak. Dan ia pun menjalankan rencana-rencananya.Rencana pertama adalah dengan berpura-pura menjadi pohon kelapa, berdiri dengan ekornya, terus kaki depan memegang buah kelapa dan mulutnya penuh dengan dahan kelapa yang berhasil [...]

    20. This book appears to be aimed at a slightly younger age group than his other bestselling stories. It’s fairly short at sixty pages and the story arc is rather simplistic. The Enormous Crocodile is a ‘wicked beastly beast’ with an appetite for small children. He travels through the jungle to look for his prey and meets an array of colourful creatures. I think that this would be a great book for introducing adjectives early on in key stage two. All of the animal characters really come to lif [...]

    21. A childhood classic for me. You have to award points to the croc for efforthe’s not one to give up easily! This wasn’t ever a book I would pick up to read on my own when I was little, but it was a definite favourite for a bedtime story with my sister and my folks. And I would argue that the images are so accessible and visually rich that this book could be read visually - wonderful for re-telling your own version of events! One of the first Dahl and Blake combinations I was introduced to, an [...]

    22. Another one of my Dahl collection. Read this to both boys and they were in love. Téo has already had me read it again and both boys acted out the Enormous Crocodile and his clever tricks immediately following the book. Hilarious. A little disconcerting to read out loud the crocodile dying at the end to a 2 and 6 year old. Dahl certainly his dark streak.

    23. One of my all time favorite children's authors. I love Roald Dahl and I loved this book. It, along with his other books, turned my reluctant third grade read into an avid reader.

    24. This was another book that my 4 year old grandson brought me to read him. The enormous crocodile has some clever tricks in mind to help him catch juicy children for a meal. How he is thwarted is a lovely story of good battling evil. While I was reading this my 6 year old grand-daughter came to listen in too. Both of them enjoyed the book but the potential is there that it might be scary for little ones.

    25. Love this funny story aboutThe Enormous Crocodile& hissecret plans & nasty trickswhich he thought would work out. His clever idea to have small children as his lunch is what this book is about. Read to know whether his mission was a success or notThis is the link to the book english4success/Upload/book
