The Lovereading4Kids comment
Roald Dahl takes on the likes of Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Goldilocks and The Three Little Pigs and brings us a brilliant collection of comic and often gory versions of popular fairy tales. Dahl's Gobblefunk is brought to life with full colour illustrations by Quentin Blake making this a delight for fans young and old.
The Good Book Guide Review. A book of fairy tales seen through a glass Dahl-kly and told in wickedly funny rhyme.... What happens to Little Red Riding Hood when she meets the wolf? 'The small girl smiles. One eyelid flickers. She whips a pistol from her knickers.' Especially good is Three Little Pigs but beware the twist in the tail! With Quentin Blake's dashing illustrations, this is a riotous read for over-eights.
