Publisher's Summary

Revolting Rhymes

Did you think Cinderella married the prince and lived happily ever after, or that the three little pigs outsmarted the wolf? Think again! Master storyteller Roald Dahl adds his own darkly comic twists to six favorite tales, complete with rambunctious rhymes and hilarious surprise endings.

Dirty Beasts

Roald Dahl's inimitable style and humor shine in this collection of poems about mischievous and mysterious animals. From Stingaling the scorpion to Crocky-Wock the crocodile, Dahl's animals are nothing short of ridiculous. A clever pig with an unmentionable plan to save his own bacon and an anteater with an unusually large appetite are among the characters created by Dahl in these timeless rhymes. This new, larger edition is perfect for listening.

Ah hahaha!

Oh my! Bought this for my 5 year old grandson. Oops! Might not be for kids.
So, I listened to it later with my husband. Brilliant! We loved the ridiculously naughty characters and delightful word choices.

THE WORD SLUT IS USED

In the Cinderella story, the prince calls Cinderella a slut. It hasn't been bleeped out and is entirely inappropriate for children.
