Review

Children will love it! (Nursery World)

Great fun and an obvious read aloud (Books for Keeps)

Bringing a welcome touch of dry Gallic humour to the sometimes-too-worthy picture book market... the rhythmic repetition of this naughty catchphrase is a joy to read aloud...An instant favourite! (Carousel)

An amusing story with wonderfully expressive illustrations (The Independent)

The familiar parental challenge of having a fussy eater is the focus of this funny tale...a hilarious take on fussy eating (Junior Resources)

I love books with a wicked glint in their eye...a deliciously naughty idea...Dorothee de Monfried's illustrations meld perfectly with the text. Both create a glorious world that you'll wish you were a part of. (The Bookbag)

The appetizing mixture of domestic breakfast concerns and fierce child-eating monsters will leave children hungry for more. "I'd really like to read that book," parents may hear them say. (Publishers Weekly)

Bringing a welcome touch of dry Gallic humour to the sometimes too-worthy picture book market... a brilliantly subversive morality tale... dynamic illustrations... An instant favourite. (Carousel)

I was hooked from the second I saw the title... I Really Want To Eat A Child more than lives up to its promise...

I loved every single word, every single page. I love Achilles' big-headedness and sulkiness. I love his arrogance and getting his come-uppance. I love his daring plans. He's a scamp and a trier, and you'd be in fits of laughter if he was your little pal. Such a beautifully well-crafted character. And that haughty stomp! Oh, such fun. Such such such fun.

Dorothée de Monfreid's illustrations meld perfectly with the text. Both create a glorious world that you'll wish you were a part of (even if that means you run the risk of Achilles nipping at your toes).

Highly highly recommended. Buy it, read it, and love Achilles the crocodile as much as I do.

(The Bookbag)

The familiar parental challenge of having a fussy eater is the focus of this funny tale...A hilarious take on fussy eating with comical facial expressions from the sulking baby croc, his exasperated parents and the high-spirited girl. (Junior)

Great fun, and an obvious read aloud. (Books for Keeps)

Children will love it! (Nursery World)

An amusing story with wonderfully expressive illustrations. (The Independent)

Book Description

A French classic, this humorous and irreverent tale tells the story of a hungry little crocodile.
