Crazy Charlie by Ruth Brown
Everyone is terrified of Crazy Charlie the crocodile. He is the biggest crocodile in the world and has the most enormous teeth and he eats everything he sees - boats, bicycles, even trains and factories. The Army is called in to deal with him, but Charlie just crunches up their cannon balls and uses their arrows as toothpicks. Then one day, something terrible happens to Charlie - his beautiful teeth begin to fall out one by one until he is totally toothless! Luckily for Charlie, a passing tourist has the perfect solution. . .
