A fantastic introduction to the world of Roald Dahl! Leo enjoyed counting and spotting the Enormous Crocodile disguised on each page. He remembered the coconut tree, seesaw, merry-go-round and picnic bench disguises from the crocodiles clever tricks in the story. He liked the made-up word chiddler(s) instead of child(ren) and the fold-out page at the end. The strong, colourful pages make it ideal for younger children.

Just received this book and we read it together straight away. My son really enjoyed counting and looking at all the bright and colourful illustrations. It is very durable and I will definitely be reading regularly to my son and to my daughter once she is born. As with most Roald Dahl books, different things have different names and in this story children are called chiddlers, which my son found very funny. This book also helps with eye to hand coordination, where you have to look for and point out the, fairly creepy looking, crocodile.

A fun counting book which has the added element of hunting for the enormous crocodile. I can see this book being used a huge amount as my baby daughter grows and begins discovering numbers and counting. As a primary school teacher myself I love how the book shows the digit as well as a pictures to show the number of ‘chiddlers’ (children), therefore supporting children’s understand of what the digit means and looks like. The book is highly durable and the classic Quentin Blake illustrations brings the book to life and give plenty to discuss and share on each page. A lovely ending too!

I love the illustrations in this book with being the classic Quentin Blake and I simply love that they are an introduction of Roald Dahl for younger children. My son loves reading through this book especially the little chiddlers running away home but I thought they were maybe a little young for him (he has just turned 3)

My daughter enjoys this book and points out the crocodile on each page. The pages are bright and nice to touch. The illustrations are nice and we like the pull out page at the end. A nice counting book.

We loved the bright and colourful Quentin Blake illustrations in this chunky board book and enjoyed counting the children and spotting the croc on each page. My 4 yr liked this one too as she knows the enormous crocodile story. 
The only thing I wasn't keen on was the changing of the word children to childers. I understand that it's in keeping with Roald Dahls writing but my one year old wouldn't understand the word and as this is a board book I think it's aimed more at her than at my 4 yr old (who just thought it odd).

This is a nice book with wonderful Quentin Blake illustrations and I’m sure it will be a firm favourite once my daughter can count. Even now, she enjoys looking at the pictures and finding the crocodile on each page. It’s in keeping with Roald Dahl’s use of language (changing the word for children) but true words themselves could have done with flowing a bit more from page to page as you count upwards.
