Item description for Dirty Beasts by Roald Dahl & Quentin Blake...

Poems tell the stories of a smart pig who outwits a farmer, a crocodile who likes to eat children, a hungry lion, a dangerous scorpion, an aunt-eating ant-eater, and a flying cow. Reissue.

Publishers Description
Roald Dahl's inimitable style and humor shine in this collection of poems about mischievous and mysterious animals. From Stingaling the scorpion to Crocky-Wock the crocodile, Dahl's animals are nothing short of ridiculous. A clever pig with an unmentionable plan to save his own bacon and an anteater with an unusually large appetite are among the characters created by Dahl in these timeless rhymes. This new, larger edition is perfect for reading aloud and makes Quentin Blake's celebrated illustrations even more enjoyable.
"Will elicit a loud 'Yuck.' In other words, children will love them." ("Children's Book Review Service")

More About Roald Dahl & Quentin Blake

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.
After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children's stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.
Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dirty Beasts?

Beastly fun  May 29, 2007
This book was a favorite of my children, and is now conquering the hearts of the next generation growing up now. It is hilarious. Roald Dahl is a master.
Cool!  Oct 17, 2005
In this book, A clever pig is trying to save his bacon with an anteater.... Just read the book!
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.

Goodness Gracious Me  May 7, 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.
A fun, silly book that children and adults would love  May 28, 1999
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.
