Product Description


"Packed with new words to learn, use and love, bold, bright and colourful illustrations, and a story that glows with fun, warmth and affection, this enchanting book is ideal for reading and sharing." -- Pam Norfolk Lancaster Evening Post "...A charming lesson in the perils of judging a book by its cover or, in this instance, a crocodile by its "long scaly lips and snippy-snappy teeth". Better still, it comes with two pages of stickers so kids can label the crocodile, lumpy warts and all." -- Rebecca Davies The Independent "A quirky and unusual story which is a great way to encourage children to develop language skills (although they will think they are just having fun!). It's full of surprises and is a lovely story of friendship." Parents in Touch --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
Mole loved to label things, but how could he label something that he didn’t know what it was? How many words could he use to label a crocodile?
This is a great book for young children who are learning the names of things that can be found in gardens, parks or woods as Mole has labelled many such things. However this book gets even better when he finds something he does not recognise and Mole has many labels to add to this lumpy, bumpy, gargantuan strange thing!
The story is well written and is perfect for children aged 5+. The number of words used to describe the crocodile is great and would make a fantastic project for reception or key stage one children.
The illustrations throughout the story are good. All simply drawn, the animals (Mole and Crocodile) are friendly, have a cartoony style but look like recognisable animals. They tell the story well and have lots of little detail which children can spot and name throughout the story.
I received this book from the publishers, Little Tiger Press, in return for an honest review.

Format: Hardcover
My son loves reading this with me. He finds it very funny and loves it when the characters become friends.

Mole likes labels. But a big lumpy bumpy thing eludes him - no one label will do. But the lumpy bumpy thing won't play ball, won't stop eating labels and following Mole. Just what does he want? And will Mole be able to change his mind about labels?

Mole is a furry little grump, our lumpy bumpy friend a silent but funny match for his petty sulks. The labels, my son never tires of asking me to read. He adores the warm ending too, seems satisfied.

This displays the power of friendship as well as the power of words. The style of illustration is very sweet and it's a lovely bedtime story for preschoolers to talk about not judging too quickly and about accepting friends different from you.

Great book for introducing the wide variety and richhess of our language when describing things. Mole meets a ""thing"", a lumpy, bumpy thing but the only sadness is that it's never named. Very good for introducing words, and description to children and could become a good game. Also introduces the idea that friendship comes in many forms. Fantastic, colourful pictures.

KidLit Gems Recommendation: DANGEROUS! 7 July 2015
By Anna Marras - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mole loved labelling things. All sorts of things. Anything really. Naming things was what Mole liked best. ~ DANGEROUS!

Most of us like to label, but few of us like to be labeled. Mole writes nouns on stickers to identify the things he knows: like frog, poop, and feathers. But when he ventures through the woods and comes across a scaly, scratchy mystery he has to resort to adjectives. And when the enormous, lumpy-bumpy, spiky thing almost rolls over on him and gobbles up all of the identifiers, Mole makes an assumption. This thing is DANGEROUS!

The thing doesn't understand and ultimately proves there's more on the inside of him than what Mole has discovered on the outside, so Mole must make more stickers. And the new adjectives are positive, leading to one conclusion--which you'll have to read for yourself.

Tim Warnes, the author of nine books, has illustrations featured in over 65 books in 18 different languages and he created the Chalk and Cheese comic strip. Most of his work includes funny anthropomorphic animal protagonists, making Dangerous! identifiable and easy to label as one of many Warnes' treasures.

If I were to write stickers for this UK import, they would say: delightful, funny, charming, creative, imaginative, pleasant, endearing, heartwarming, empathetic, sweet, friendly, clever, thought-provoking, quirky, superb, suspenseful, page-turner, genius, treasured, wish-I'd-have-thought-of-it, a favorite.

Kristi's Book Nook 8 May 2014
By Kristi Bernard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
How big and scary do you think a big, lumpy and bumpy sleeping crocodile could be?

Mole loves to put words on stickers. He knows quite a bit about the plants, flowers, rocks, trees and animals that thrive where he lives. It doesn't seem to bother the other little creatures in the forest when he tags them with his labels. One day, he encounters something that he has never seen before.

He poked it gently.
Then he stuck a label on it.
And another...
… and then a few more.
But he still didn't know what it was.

Moles labels read gargantuan, scaly, huge, speckled, spotted and so many more. When the sleeping creature awakens and begins to gobble up the labels this makes Mole very upset. As a matter of fact he gets so angry that he begins to yell at the burpy, lumpy, greedy and naughty thing. Do you suppose Mole would be eaten next?

Author and illustrator Tim Warnes has created a tale of wonderful words. Young readers will chuckle at all of the sticky notes and learn so many new words. Hilarious and quirky pictures and oversized wording really put a fun spin on this story. Parents and teachers will love this as a read-aloud book that could be very interactive. Readers will have fun pointing out the familiar objects, animals, insects and plants too.
Great book about words and friendship 14 Sept. 2014
By Live Outside - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Let’s describe something and put labels all over it. That is what Mole did when he discovered a strange object out in the woods. Mole loves to label things like ladybugs, poop, bark, anthills and lichen when he’s out walking on his path. When he came across something in his path that he didn’t know what it was, he just started labeling it with words like bumpy, strange, slimy, gigantic, scaly, ribbed, knobbly as he tries to figure out exactly what it was. When the sharp, stripy thing yawns, Mole begins to run away but comes back as he needs to make more labels to put on the creature lying on his path. It’s a small mole against this lumpy-bumpy thing and sometimes size does not matter. The pictures are wonderful and colorful with bold text that is sometimes offset with different sized font and type. Kids will love this book and I loved all the words that mole used as he placed labels on everything.
