This book takes some of our best known fairy stories, from Cinderella to Red Riding Hood and gives them a twist, a mischievous and thoroughly enjoyable twist.... read these ryhmes and you will never think of Red Riding Hood in quite the same way.
Although the topic of these rhymes are essentially children's stories, don't deprive yourself of a good, healthy dose of Dahl's deliciously revolting prose.
Read them aloud to children and you'll find yourself led by the rhyme and building the tension, hamming it up as Red Riding Hood, "one eyelid flickers, she whips the pistol from her knickers...", as Dahl manages to covey the naughty in a thoroughly refreshingly, innocent way.
An enjoyably revolting and delightfully digestible book. You won't be dissapointed, Dahl is an intelligent and inspired master of mischief. You might even be tempted to write a review of your own....
Great reading for any age.
I found this book a helpful tool in encouraging my younger sister to practice as well as enjoy reading. The way which Dahl presents the fairy tales which we all know and love is innovative, commical and imaginative.
I cannot believe there are bad reviews, with violence as the reason! Have you never read any Grimm brothers?
