The Enormous Croc is not as smart as he thinks he is. He has all kinds of clever plans to catch a juicy child or two for his lunch. But on his way to the town, he's stupid enough to tell every creature he meets where he is going and why. So when he tries all his ruses to fool the children, Humpy-Rumpy the Hippo and Trunky the Elephant and Muggle-Wump the Monkey and the Roly-Poly Bird rush to the rescue and foil his plans before he can snatch any kids. Finally, Trunky winds him up and sends him rocketing off into space, where he crashes into the sun and gets sizzled up like a sausage. Sssssssssssss. No more Enormous Crocodile. Boo hoo. Normally I don't care much for Quentin Blake's illustrations, but the ones in this book are in color and add a lot of fun to the story.
