From the Publisher
A collection of irreverant rhymes featuring characters from fairy tales, fables and nursery rhymes - as you''ve never seen them before! From the tortoise and the hare and Hansel and Gretel to Ali Baba and Aladdin, these traditional stories will never seem the same again once you have had a taste of Roald Dahl''s hilarious verse and Quentin Blake''s suitably lively illustrations. An inventive collection for older children and adults alike, Rhyme Stew bubbles over with Roald Dahl''s extraordinary humour and imagination.
