    The Enormous Crocodile, Roald Dahl The Enormous Crocodile is a 1978 children s story, written by Roald Dahl The story begins in Africa in a large, deep, muddy river, where the enormous crocodile the title character is telling a smaller crocodile, known as the Not So Big One, that he wants to eat children for his lunch The small crocodile objects, because children taste nasty and bitter in his opinion compared to fish, and because of what happened the last time the big crocodile tried to eat children The larger crocodile leaves the big, brown muddy river anyway, and announces his intention to Humpy Rumpy the hippopotamus, Trunky the elephant, Muggle Wump the monkey and the Roly Poly Bird The animals insult him and hope that he will fail miserably and will himself be killed and eaten, after which the big crocodile briefly and unsuccessfully attacks Muggle Wump and the Roly Poly Bird First of all, the crocodile heads to a coconut tree forest, not far away from a town and disguises himself as a small coconut tree with branches and coconuts, hoping to eat a pair of children, Toto and Mary, but is exposed by Humpy Rumpy Next, the crocodile heads to a children s playground located outside an ancient school building and disguises himself as a see saw, with the help of a large piece wood, hoping to eat a whole class of children, but is exposed by Muggle Wump Then, the crocodile heads to a funfair and, when nobody is looking, he disguises himself as a wooden crocodile on a merry go round by sandwiching himself between a brown lion and a yellow dragon with a pink red tongue sticking out of its mouth hoping to eat a young girl named Jill who wants to ride on him, but is exposed by the Roly Poly Bird Last of all, the crocodile heads to a picnic place just outside the town When nobody is looking, the crocodile himself picks a bunch of colourful flowers and arranges it on one of the tables before from exactly the same table, taking away one of the benches and hiding it in the bushes and then disguising himself as a long, wooden four legged bench, hoping to eat four children who are going out on a picnic, but is exposed by Trunky 2004 1382 1397 64 9789643690830 20 1385 32

    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 That being said, this croc plays lots of nasty and cruel tricks in order to fill his belly, but fortunately, he happens to piss off most of the jungle creatures on his way to his playground meal ticket.Alas Poor stupid croc And because this is A dahl tale, it gets really weird Let s alter reality and turn it into an urban fantasy that winds up as a space opera, shall we Right On I love BBQ So does my daughter, it seems

    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 think the main reason the author chose a crocodile was it s outer appearance suitable for many disguises to get close to the unsuspecting children anyway.The story is about bullies and their ways of approaching victims and how watchful eyes and compassion from others can save the day not to mention that the bad croc gets what it deserves.As usual, the story had the signature illustrations by Quentin Blake, only in this version they were coloured in not used to that, my other books have the original black and white ones that I actually prefer.It is clear that Roald Dahl is one of THE master storytellers for children and I always enjoy his stories very much, no matter how short they are

    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, where he encounters many other animals and tells them of his fiendish plan Again, he is dismissed, but out of a worry for the innocent children From there, it is up to the Enormous Crocodile to concoct the perfect plan to get these children into his belly Armed with the knowledge of the Enormous Crocodile s plan, the jungle animals do all they can to foil it, but will they be too late A wonderfully amusing read for children and adults alike that keeps the reader on their toes throughout.Dahl is a wonderful storyteller, even if the tales can sometimes flirt with the edge of the macabre He utilises some of the wonderful things that children know about their surroundings and injects just enough spook to keep children guessing Will the child be saved or has the Enormous Crocodile found a way to win again Delightfully simple with a quiver full of laughable moments, Roald Dahl level of writing is surely missed in modern children s storytelling.Kudos, Mr Dahl for another wonderful story I hope to keep reading a collection of your work and finding new gems about which I can be proud.Like hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at
