NOW THE WORLD'S GREATEST STORIES CAN BE ENJOYED AT ANY TIME AND ANY WHERE
Do you know what a crocodile crunches for lunch? Or what a pig can do to save his bacon? Listen as Prunella Scales and Timothy West read you Roald Dahl's gorgeously ghastly and deliciously dreadful DIRTY BEASTS.
The poems are about animals, as the title would suggest, but often the more gruesome child-like side. For example, the poem about Daisy the cow, my personal favourite.
The rhyming schemes and lengths of the poems vary, which keeps the book interesting.
I would recommend this book for children and parents alike, as it is funny yet makes poetry seem fun and easy. As a child, I remember wanting to write my own poetry like it. 7 years later, I am doing so for my A Level English Language work. It is book that is difficult to forget, but for all the right reasons.
