The Enormous Crocodile – Roald Dahl


My sister PinkNinja picked out this book from the library because it’s cover showed a giant crocodile with his mouth open. ┬áThere are also some scared looking kids on the cover.

The book tells the story of an enormous crocodile who wants to eat kids for lunch. He makes a plan and disguises as various kid friendly things like a coconut tree, a see-saw and a park bench to try to make the kids come near him. The other animals ( monkey, hippo and a crane) hate his plan and try to save the kids by stopping him. In the end, the elephant swings him faster and faster and faster and finally throws him into outer space!

My sister wasn’t scared at all with the book and laughed at the funny things that the other animals did to the crocodile.
