The Enormous Crocodile

Yikes! The Enormous Crocodile is the greediest creature in the whole jungle – and he’s determined to eat a nice juicy child for lunch! He’s a terrible boaster and very proud of his secret plans and clever tricks, like disguising himself as a seesaw and a picnic bench for careless little children to sit on. Crunch! Can the other jungle animals stop the cunning crocodile’s sneaky scheme and teach him a lesson he’ll never forget? This classic comic tale of snapping teeth and sharp wits is stuffed with Quentin Blake’s mouth-watering artwork!
