Second time round, a whole year later he rediscovered the book and we read it together with a two year old: as we reached the last page, my son yelled out the final words with such joy and relish that I decided to buy it for him for Christmas.....meanwhile we have made several excursions to the local library at his insistence to hunt for this book.
The pictures are delightful, and little ones love to point out the croc in all his various diguises as he attempts to sneak up on the unwary.
Definitely a must for a parent or grandparent of a child 2-5 years who likes to snuggle up on your lap with a good book.
In Summary, probably the best book I have read with my child to date.
We liked the ending of the story the most, because it was sudden and unexpected. If you read this story you will find why. We also liked when the other animals decided that they had plans of their own.
Although, we did think that Roald could have made this book a bit more exciting by having more surprises and mysteries.
We think that this book would good for ages 5 - 11. This is great book for adults to read to younger children. We think that people who enjoy humorous stories, fiction stories and plots will enjoys this book.
We would give this book 5 stars.
The enormous crocodile himself has a delicious nastiness which almost makes you wish he succeeds in eating the children and the small crocodile has authentic incredulity at his larger associate's prediliction for crunchy little boys.
But most of all... my little 3 year old boy loves listening to it over and over and over!
this book is captivating.It has lovely illustaion by quentin blake.I like it because it it is an adventurous book.This book is hilarious!My favourite character was the nasty crocodile.Do yo think the crocodile learnt his lesson at the end?You know what to do find out in this book.

I loved sharing this with my son, aged 4. We've watched the Dave Benson-Phillips narrated DVD, so he knew the story, but this unabridged version takes longer to read (though we... Read morePublished 9 months ago by K. J. Noyes
