9780141350370: Revolting Rhymes

"The small girl smiles. One eyelid flickers. She whips a pistol from her knickers." Fairytales as you've never seen them before! Gruesome and grisly, dastardly and daring, these Revolting Rhymes turn familiar stories topsy-turvy. Maybe Cinderella decides against her prince? Perhaps Jack outwits the giant in an unexpected way? No-one is safe - not Snow-White nor Goldilocks, and the Big Bad Wolf better watch out, because Little Red Riding Hood won't go down without a fight...

From the Inside Flap:

I guess you think you know this story.
You don?t. The real one?s much more gory.
The phoney one, the one you know,
Was cooked up years and years ago. . . .


With his famous wicked humor and the cunning of a big bad wolf, master storyteller and satirist Roald Dahl retells his six favorite fairy tales. Get ready for Dahl?s diabolical version of what really happened to Cinderella, Goldilocks, the Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White, and Little Red Riding Hood.
From the Hardcover edition.
