Product description

Aaaarggh! Your favourite fairy tales – gone wrong! These hilarious rhymes are full of hungry beasts, greedy giants, wicked crooks… and naughty, cheeky, beastly little children. Meet Little Red Riding Hood, the grisly little girl who collects wolf-skin coats! Gasp at the nerve of rude Goldilocks, the cheeky house-breaker who gobbles up your porridge – and then breaks up the Chippendale. With wicked wit and the cunning of a big bad wolf, Roald Dahl turns six favourite fairy tales really REVOLTING! Whatever next?

Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany Revolting Rhymes, which help children compare the rhymes to the original fairy tales and explore the effect. A great way to get boys and girls into poetry!

    This book is bursting with the classic fairy tales turned into vulgar stories! Like red riding hood who carries the gun in her pants and collects wolf skins or the horrible, mean and rude goldilocks. As an age rating I would say 5-8

    The ryhmes are REALLY funny, and of corse, REVOLTING! One of my favourite books of all time- and the best! The poems/rymes are very discriptive, and I love the tale of red riding hood, which is a medley of many famous childrens tale, it fitted really well! I’ve read the whole book millions of time, its catchy,cool and by far brilliant!

    There is truly no other book as hilariously surprisingly revolting as this one! Recommend as a ‘reading poetry aloud’ day at primary schools for kids. Hilarious, Loved it!
