    Roald Dahl Quentin Blake
    Roald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer and screenwriter of Norwegian descent, who rose to prominence in the 1940 s with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world s bestselling authors.Dahl s first published work, inspired by a meeting with C S Forester, was Shot Down Over Libya Today the story is published as A Piece of Cake The story, about his wartime adventures, was bought by the Saturday Evening Post for 900, and propelled him into a career as a writer Its title was inspired by a highly inaccurate and sensationalized article about the crash that blinded him, which claimed he had been shot down instead of simply having to land because of low fuel.His first children s book was The Gremlins, about mischievous little creatures that were part of RAF folklore The book was commissioned by Walt Disney for a film that was never made, and published in 1943 Dahl went on to create some of the best loved children s stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.He also had a successful parallel career as the writer of macabre adult short stories, usually with a dark sense of humour and a surprise ending Many were originally written for American magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, Harper s, Playboy and The New Yorker, then subsequently collected by Dahl into anthologies, gaining world wide acclaim Dahl wrote than 60 short stories and they have appeared in numerous collections, some only being published in book form after his death His stories also brought him three Edgar Awards in 1954, for the collection Someone Like You in 1959, for the story The Landlady and in 1980, for the episode of Tales of the Unexpected based on Skin.

    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 NATURAL [...]

    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 thi [...]

    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.

    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 jungles, [...]

    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

    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

    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 rocke [...]

    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 writin [...]

    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.

    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 importanc [...]

    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.

    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.

    Zaz
    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.

    Alice Martin
    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 adult was ho [...]

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

    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 life due to Dahl [...]

    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, and a beauti [...]

    Another one of my Dahl collection Read this to both boys and they were in love T o 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.

    Neda
    Well it wasn t as funny as Dahl s other books Didn t like it much

    Kim Jones
    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.

    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.
