Roald Dahl Winning Entries
THE ROALD DAHL POSTER COMPETITION
The competition was to write exactly 100 words describing your favourite Roald Dahl Character.
THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE
The enormous, ginormous, jumungous crocodile likes to eat mugglewump monkeys with his sharp, pointy knife-like teeth. He also likes to eat children of all shapes and sizes. He hides behind bushes his sneaky, naughty, greedy, scary self. He has big bulging eyes that pop out as if they were on strings. He has lots of bumpy, lumpy, wrinkly, schrinkly scales running all the way down his back. All the funny animals that live near him are ever-so-scared. Whenever he tries to make a plan or three he always fails and it is always a big fat fail!

A DESCRIPTION OF MONKEY FROM ‘THE GIRAFFE AND THE PELLY AND ME’ BY ROALD DAHL
My favourite Roald Dahl character is a fantabulous cheeky chappy called Monkey, who loves mucking around, but always gets the job done.
He’s a skinny, skilled, furry primate who loves to sing and dance while he works cleaning windows with his best friends Pelly and Giraffe. He's honest, loyal and jollyfuntastic.
Monkey is quick and polite and will come day or night. He uses water and soap (plus some kindness and hope) to make grubby windows sparkylicious.
He’s enthusiastic, alert and courageous in the face of bungling burglars.
He’s a hilarious hairy hero who’ll keep you chuckling till the end.
