What children really want to hear,
By A Customer
This review is from: Revolting Rhymes (Hardcover)
Roald Dahl captures the imagination of young children with his amusing and alternate take on the classic 'fairy tales'. When reading all his books you realise he had a flair for understanding what children really wanted to read about and yet often still managed to get all the moral messages across. The beauty of this book is furthered by the amazing illustrations by Quentin Blake, they really bring the characters of the book to life, and guarantee the attention of young children.
All in all this is a must buy book for any child, and also for any parent with fond memories of hours spent reading it at home or in school.
