Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts Summary

Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts by Roald Dahl

In Dirty Beasts, meet a ghastly menagerie of wonderfully comic animals that can only have been invented by Roald Dahl. There is the toad that jumps to France - at his own peril; the pig who ponders the meaning of life; the ant-eater who gets the wrong end of the stick and lots more. Snigger, titter and laugh at their antics in this collection of irreverent and absurdly comic verse! In Revolting Rhymes, think again if you thought you knew the stories of some of the most popular fairy tales. Here are six of the best known retold, with more than a twist or two, by the master of the comic and the blood-curdling.
