To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I loved this picture book with the rhyming tales all involving animals. From the pig trying to work out the purpose of its life, the crocodile who likes boys who taste of mustard and girls who taste of caramel and butterscotch, the vengeful cow, the stingaling scorpion, the hungry ant-eater, the prickly porcupine and the beast in a kid's tummy. Also great to see the Roly Poly bird who features in quite a few Roald Dahl's books. All very memorable characters and rhymes. Loved it!
Ahhhhh an all-time classic book which brings back so many happy hours bed-time reading with my children. My original book took some bashing so had to be discarded, but what an excuse to buy another copy! Fun all the way through and children just love the grizzly rhymes and stories. My own children recite the book from over 30 years ago without even having the book in hand. Memorable to say the least!! Now my grandchildren enjoy it too. Arrived quickly and well packaged.
Alongside Revolting Rhymes this is an absolute must have book. Full of fun, at times slightly naughty tales that kids will adore this once again proves why Roald Dahl is so beloved to children (and adults) worldwide.
My kids 4 and 6 absolutely love this book of little, funny stories! It has a wonderful humour to it and the stories are short so could be easily read to or by young readers themselves. A worthy buy if you like Roald Dahl
This was always a favourite of my son's and I remember the words of The Crocodile to this day! The rhymes are brilliantly written and funny. I bought this for my grandson, who, like his Daddy, absolutely loves me reading these to him and I get the same enjoyment that I did all those years ago. A must for every child's collection.
