The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl with illustrations by Quentin Blake. 


5th printing of the rare U.K. true First Edition, issued without a dust jacket.

Oversized hardback w/ heavyweight boards in excellent condition.  

Some very minor shelf wear to boards and a tiny spot of sealed surface damage on back [see last photo] -- otherwise mint.  Reads as new. 

The Enormous Crocodile is incredibly hungry-and incredibly greedy. His favorite meal is a plump, juicy little child, and he intends to gobble up as many of them as he can! But when the other animals in the jungle join together to put an end to his nasty schemes, the Enormous Crocodile learns a lesson he won't soon forget. Dahl's wicked humor is as delightful as ever in this new, larger edition of a hilarious favorite.
