The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl tells the story of a very naughty crocodile.

The Enourmous Crocodile is another story from the brilliant Dahl. Once again, we find animals protraying different human traits such as greed and empathy. I believe this is a very entertaining book for young schoolchildren (1st / 2nd graders!).

I didn't find these as good as the usual. The Magic Finger is definitely anti hunting, which I find interesting.
