No animal is half as vile
As Crocky-Wock, the crocodile.
~ The poem's opening lines about Crocky-Wock.

Crocky-Wock, also known as the crocodile, is the titular main antagonist of Roald Dahl's poem The Crocodile, first published in the 1983 collection Dirty Beasts. He is a crocodile who, unlike other crocodiles, goes out of his way to eat humans, as demonstrated in the poem.

Biography

The poem takes the form of a father describing Crocky-Wock to his son. It starts out by claiming that Crocky-Wock is the most vile animal in the world, before going on to describe how he goes out of his way to eat humans, specifically children. On Saturdays, he goes after and eats six children, three girls and three boys. He smears the boys with mustard to make them hot before eating them, and he dips the girls in caramel and butterscotch to make them sweet. The father then tells his son to go to sleep, only to hear something coming up the stairs. He shouts at the child to get his gun, but then changes his mind and gets him away from the door as Crocky-Wock enters the room.
