Roald Dahl's irreverent and hilarious collection, Revolting Rhymes . This book is filled with revolting rhymes.
(Be warned: It's no ordinary Once upon a time). There's poor Cindy whose heart was torn to shreds, because her Prince, he chops off heads ! Snow White's dwarfs although awfully nice, are guilty of one shocking vice . . . And what becomes of Goldilocks, that nasty thieving little louse, when she goes sneaking around the three bear's house . . . Listen to REVOLTING RHYMES and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios! Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! inspired by the revolting Twits.

I enjoy rhyming books, and this one was really funny. I knew I would enjoy this, as it was by Roald Dahl. This one had 6 stories- Cinderella, jack and the beanstalk, snow white, goldilocks, little red riding hood and 3 little pigs. The stories aren't as you know them, they have been given a funny twist, such as Cinderella gets flushed down the loo and Goldilocks is a thief. I found the stories really funny, the flowed well because of the rhyming couplets and each story was a great length, not too short but not long. It is a book both boys and girls will like. y

Well who doesnt love a Roald Dahl book! this book is genius, full of fun, witty rhymes based on traditional tales with a twist! my boys loved the Goldilocks story, and because it is a rhyming book it makes it easy to follow and also for them to try and read themselves. A bookshelf classic.

I just love this book and I think it is my favourite book.  I especially like Cinderella as she is much more interesting than the normal Cinderella.  There pictures are lots of funny pictures and my baby brother really enjoyed looking at the pictures while I read the rhymes to him.

I read it myself (an adult) , to Bee aged 8 aged 8 & to Bamboo6 aged 6 aged 6

This book is just hilarious. I tremendous it as a child and my children seem to enjoy it equally as much. 

It's a collection of shorter rhymes rather than a long story so is good for reluctant reader or kids who are easily bored. Also a good one to dip in and out of. 

An ideal alternative formats of reading matter to ye reading books most children will have experienced. A good first introduction to poetry. Thoroughly recommended.

I used to check this out of the library all the time! One of my favourite books to read. It put a twist on the traditional fairy tales I already loved, but with a hilarious and rhyming twist!

Brilliant for my 6 year old!  Hes just starting to read more independently and this is a great book for him to do that.  The rhymes are just the right length so he can read one a day/night and it doesn't get to much.

Obviously, they rhymes are funny and he loves them!

This story book soooo funny
This book has a few stories in it such as Cinderella, Snow White & The Three Little Pigs and more.
These stories are based on the original stories but changed by Roald Dahl to make the rhyme, and the endings have been changed do they are not a happy ever ending.
My mam read these stories to me at bedtime and I really laughed because they are really funny and sometimes a bit disgusting.
