The Enormous Crocodile
by Roald Dahl
This isn’t exactly a chapter book. In fact, it’s such a little book that it’s all in one chapter. It’s a lot like a classic fable. An enormous, ravening crocodile sets his mind on eating some fat, juicy children for lunch. Along the way he makes the acquaintance of several animals, but he doesn’t exactly make friends. The other animals keep warning the children to stay away from the enormous crocodile, thwarting all his imaginative traps and schemes, until finally the crocodile gets what he deserves. Witty and full of Dahl’s unique brand of word-magic, this story will especially delight youngsters who may not be old enough for Harry Potter.
