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.
