Book Description

July 1 2014
This is a collection of (mainly) grisly beasts out for human blood, ranging from Crocky-Wock the crocodile to Sting-A-Ling the scorpion. Described in verse with all Dahl's usual gusto and illustrated in a suitably wicked style by Quentin Blake. Was that Crocky-Wock galumphing up the stairs? Is Sting-a-Ling hiding in your bed? And what foul fate has Piggy planned for Farmer Bland? Warning! This book contains wickedly funny verse, prickly surprises and the most despicable creatures you could ever hope (not) to meet.

About the Author

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. His books continue to be bestsellers, despite his death in 1990, and total UK sales are 55 million worldwide! Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite Dec 17 2003
From a six year olds' point of view.
"It is fun to ready and funny. I love the part of the boy with the talking tummy."
I thought some of the Rhymes might be a little to grody for a little girl, but that is the essence of this little book. She takes delight in reading it aloud to her friends at school. And she never tires of it. She is a Roald Dahl fan and I am over the moon about it. I think Dahl and his books are a great alternative or addition to Junie B. Jones and Magic Tree House. But I think ultimately he will outlast many of these other books. He is a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh man! Jan. 17 2004
I remember reading this in 5th grade (1995) and laughing so hard. From the Ant Eater that ate aunts (due to American mis-pronounciation), to the cow that sprouted wings and flew around crapping on thigs, this never got old. This was pretty hard to find back in the day, but it's good to see Amazon has a lot of them in stock. This is dirtier than Dahl's other stories...as the name suggests...but it's nothing too offensive for anyone younger than 9 or 10. Go for it, it's nuts and a half.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodness Gracious Me May 6 2003
A classic piece of Dahl lunacy. Whether you are 5 or 50 this Roald Dahl classic will have you squirming and tittering. Quentin Blake's wonderful illustrations capture Dahl's beasts and bring them hairily to life.

My cousin bought me this book when I was about six and I still love it (I'm 17 now). My whole family thinks it's a hilarious book and we have given it to many of our friends for presents.
