To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It was nice but extremely short. Like I completed the book just in hard 15- 20 min. I returned it. Waste of money and also there is not much of story also to it. It is good for little children not for above 10
For a small book, I found this one to be expensive. Given its glossy papers and colour illustrations, the price is justified.
The story is of a greedy crocodile that wanted to eat up children. His plan is foiled by other animals. They warned the children before the horrible animal managed gobble them up.
At last Trunky the elephant swung the crocodile fast and then threw him in the sky. The crocodile hit the sun and was sizzled up in the sun's heat.
The writer's language is excellent. He writes in natural English idiom that is rare to find in American and Indian books written for children. All children should read as much of Roald Dahl as they can. I envy my son for he would be reading Dahl at an early age.
I must say, however, that this book is for children above five or for children who can read on their own. My son is just four. I bought the book but the story is rather long for him to stay interested in it. The story is text heavy and pictures are small.
Oh my! What a suspense builder this is! Amusing story of a mean, hungry crocodile who dreams of eating children! Each page talks about how the wily crocodile plots to get his meal and how all the other animals support the children. And of course, children win and the crocodile is swing around and thrown up in to the air like a rocket by an elephant. Complete fantasy, good vocabulary and leaves kids with a smile at the end! Recommended for 5 -7 crowd.
