Signed by Roald Dahl in blue ink to the verso of the front endpaper. An important book in Roald Dahl bibliography. The Enormous Crocodile was the first of Dahl's books to be illustrated by Quentin Blake, beginning one of the most notable partnerships of author and illustrator in late 20th century children's literature. "The combination of Roald Dahl as storyteller with Quentin Blake as illustrator must be the recipe for a bestseller" - Times Literary Supplement, 29 September 1978.
