The Notsobig Crocodile


One of the crocodiles was enormous. The other was not so big... "I never eat children," the Notsobig One said. "Only fish."



'"I never eat children," the Notsobig One said. "Only fish."' - The Enormous Crocodile

The Notsobig Crocodile lives in "the biggest, brownest muddiest river in Africa," alongside The Enormous Crocodile. But while the Enormous Crocodile is always on the lookout for a juicy child to eat, the Notsobig One eats only fish, saying that children "are tough and chewy and nasty and bitter."

Can the Enormous Crocodile be stopped? Notsobig and the other residents of the river-bank are the ones to stop him...

The Enormous Crocodile was published in 1978. It is the first Roald Dahl story to feature illustrations by Sir Quentin Blake.
