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.

By Horatio Horatio on Jan. 17 2004
Format: Paperback
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.

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.
