The Enormous Crocodile (Hardback)

Yikes! The Enormous Crocodile is a greedy, grumptious brute who loves to guzzle up juicy little boys and girls. He’s a terrible boaster and very proud of his cunning plans and clever tricks, like disguising himself as a seesaw and a picnic bench for careless little children to sit on. Crunch! But the other jungle animals have had enough of this foul fiend’s horrid schemes – so they devise a plan to get rid of him, once and for all! Now in a wonderful hardback gift edition, this classic comic tale of snapping teeth and sharp wits is stuffed with Quentin Blake’s mouth-watering artwork.
