My favourite books as a kid were The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy, Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown, The Fiend Next Door by Sheila Lavelle and The Twits by Roald Dahl.
I must admit I didn’t get around to reading the Enormous Crocodile until quite recently – it’s one of the books I always wanted to read but it was never in our local library.
I rectified that as an adult, by buying all of Roald Dahl’s books for my son (and me!) to keep and read over and over again. I picked most of them up in the little charity shop down the road – apart from The Enormous Crocodile which never appeared on the shelves (I had to go to a bookshop for that one). I can only imagine that people love this cantankerous croc so much that they cherish their copy of the book.
For this week’s craft we pay homage to the green meanie with a clothes peg croc.
