LoveReading View on Dirty Beasts

Roald Dahl's wondercrump collection of animal rhymes featuring grisly beasts out for human blood, ranging from Gocky-Wock the crocodile to Sting-A-Ling the scorpion.  With full colour illustrations by Quentin Blake this will make a wonderful addition to your 'forever keeps' pile.

Dirty Beasts Synopsis

Dirty Beasts is a collection of hilarious animal rhymes from the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller! Reissued in the exciting new Roald Dahl branding. A collection of (mainly) grisly beasts out for human blood, ranging from Gocky-Wock the crocodile to Sting-A-Ling the scorpion. Described in verse with all Dahl's usual gusto and illustrated in suitably lurid style by Quentin Blake. Exciting, bold and instantly recognisable with Quentin Blake's inimitable artwork.

And now you can listen to Dirty Beasts and other Roald Dahl audio books read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!

Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting Twit or Miss! inspired by the revolting Twits.
