    I really enjoyed this book full of short stories All the short stories were remakes of fairy tales They were all gruesome and some of them even intertwined I highly suggest this book for anyone that likes fairy tales and or anyone that likes Roald Dahl I really feel this was one of his best works, even though it is really short.

    Revolting Rhymes Paperback by Roald Dahl is a book I read to my kids and then to my grandkids This book has given everyone giggles in our house from the very young to the very old It is the kind of book that never grows old itself It is a keeper I still have it from many years ago I can not count how many times this poor book has been read It was worth every penny.

    I m not going to review this, I m simply going to point out to many of the previous reviewers that the word slut is defined as a dirty, untidy, or slovenly woman It is only in the past 20 years, or so, that the word has commonly become associated with sexual morality or the lack thereof Especially given Roald Dahl s age when he wrote this in the 1980s, I m pretty certain that he did not mean it to have any sexual connotation, especially since cinderella is, by definition, someone who looks dirty and untidy all the time Besides that, anyone who doesn t want to expose their young child to the corrupting influence of this book because of that one word, taken out of context, is extremely unrealistic about what sort of language they hear use when they are in the school yard Let your children read it, I guarantee they ll thank you for it

    The best poems in this collection are true masterpieces of satire Here s the start of Cinderella I guess you think you know this story.You don t The real one s much gory.The phoney one, the one you know,Was cooked up years and years ago,And made to sound all soft and sappyjust to keep the children happy.Mind you, they got the first bit right,The bit where, in the dead of night,The Ugly Sisters, jewels and all,Departed for the Palace Ball,While darling little CinderellaWas locked up in a slimy cellar,Where rats who wanted things to eat,Began to nibble at her feet.

    Leave it to Roald Dahl to grab me by the collar, and drag me out of a reading slump right before exams.

    A short compendium of fifteen tales told by one of the great children s storytellers of all time Dahl uses his wonderful rhyming ability to re tell some of the better known fairy tales to set the record straight Children can marvel at all the things they will learn from Dahl and his mind that spills full of wonderful ideas From there, Dahl takes the reader on to recount a few lesser known members of the animal kingdom, all of whom have special abilities Sure to entertain and impress, Dahl has done it again with his wonderful wit and somewhat saucy language, which I still think straddles what would be appropriate for the age level to which this piece is geared.Kudos, Mr Dahl for dazzling and impressing I am pleased to have added this to my buddy reads and hope others will find it enjoyable too.Like hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at

    Not nearly as revolting as I would have liked, but still nice rhyming takedowns of some popular fairy tales The best bit is the femme fatale take on Little Red Riding Hood Never mess with a girl who knows how to handle herself around wolves.
