This book is about an enormous crocodile. For his lunch, he wanted to eat a juicy child. The crocodile always sang: “I'm going to fill my hungry empty tummy with something yummy, yummy, yummy!” He said this to a hipo, an elephant and a roly poly bird. Where his plans going to fail? Was he going to eat a child?
My favourite part is when the crocodile was hiding like a coconut tree and saw some tasty children. Roald Dahl is such a fantastic author because he entertains the reader and the bad characters always learn a lesson. Quentin Blake is the illustrator and he is excellent because if you look at the drawings you understand the story better and you are surely going to laugh.
If you like funny books, I recommend this book to you. It’s just right for kids that like to be entertained and laugh. When I read this book, I couldn't put it DOWN.
