A delight. Bought for my year 1 son who needs more challenging reading material, but I don't want to put him of with endless pages of text. The slightly larger format, and colourful illustrations keep him engaged, quality white paper means that the book looks and feels wonderful. I have gone on to buy esio trot, George's marvellous medicine and giraffe, pally and me, all of which have impressed me and my son. Fantastic Mr fox is on my wish list

Lovely book. Even I enjoyed reading this to my daughter. J was also pleasantly surprised the Roly-Poly Bird and Muggle-Wump the Monkey appear in this as they also appear in his book 'the Twits'. The various disguises the crocodile adopts to hide and capture children is quite ingenious and I think this is what I liked the most.

This is the edition that I should not have bought! Printed on somewhat second-hand paper, and black-and-white Quentin Blake drawings, not colour. I thought it was a bit too cheap!!

Beautifully written and illustrated, my daughter, age 4, loves this story. I imagine she will enjoy it for years to come.

Read this to my 3 yr old in one sitting, he loved it, I kept asking him if I should stop and read more later and he just kept saying no, read it all now! To be honest I think I liked it as much as he did!
