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.
