The Enormous Crocodile boasts that he is going to eat a child for lunch and he sets out to trick all the children in his attempts for food. But his plots and disguises are foiled by the animals in the jungle – especially by Trunky, the elephant.

I thought it was very good because it was funny in some parts. It was written well although I had to think hard about some of the words.

It was very interesting because it kept me reading to have a laugh and to see what happened.

I would recommend it to anyone.

I really like this book because I liked all tge animals except from the enormous crocodile. The enormous crocodile tried to eat everybody but in the end he got flung into space and crashed into the sun.

My favourite character was Humpy Rumpy the hippopotamus because he was very cool.

I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.

This book was good to read and the bit where the elephant swings the croc round is my fave

I listened to this as an audiobook. I have read it before a few times but still find it quite funny. I like the funny names and words Roald Dahl uses. My favourite part is when the Enormous Crocodile is as still as a wooden one and the children are nearly tricked.
