    These humorous verses were originally written for children but the taste is much more to an adult liking. They are strange, perverse, and the morals they provide … Well, that’s for you to decide.  Luckily Joyce Grenfell is narrating, so it’s double the experience!  Here’s what you can look forward to hearing:“Jim: Who Ran Away from his Nurse, and was Eaten by a Lion.”“Henry King: Who Chewed Bits of String, and was Early Cut Off in Dreadful Agonies.”“Matilda: Who Told Lies, and was Burned to Death.”‘Franklin Hyde: Who Caroused in the Dirt and was Corrected by His Uncle.”“Godolphin Horne: Who was Cursed with the Sin of Pride, and Became a Boot-Black.”“Algernon: Who Played with a Loaded Gun, and on Missing his Sister, was Reprimanded by his Father.”“Hildebrand: Who was Frightened by a Passing Motor, and was Brought to Reason.”“Lord Lundy: Who was Too Freely Moved to Tears, and thereby Ruined his Political Career.”“Rebecca: Who Slammed Doors for Fun and Perished Miserably.”“George: Who Played with a Dangerous Toy, and Suffered a Catastrophe of Considerable Dimensions.”“Charles Augustus Fortescue: Who Always Did hat was Right, and so Accumulated an Immense Fortune.”“The Example”“John: Who Lost a Fortune by Throwing Stones.”“Maria: Who Made Faces and a Deplorable Marriage.”“Sarah Byng: Who Could Not Read and Was Tossed into a Thorny Hedge by a Bull.”“Jack and His Pony, Tom”“Tom and His Pony, Jack”“Lord Lundy (Second Canto)”“The Garden Party”

    Revolting Rhymes Did you think Cinderella married the prince and lived happily ever after, or that the three little pigs outsmarted the wolf? Think again! Master storyteller Roald Dahl adds his own darkly comic twists to six favorite tales, complete with rambunctious rhymes and hilarious surprise endings. Dirty Beasts Roald Dahl’s inimitable style and humor shine in this collection of poems about mischievous and mysterious animals.

    The poet, author, and indomitable naturalist Jack Prelutsky, having returned safely from far-flung places with an extensive collection of unique creatures that are a blending of the animate and inanimate, has worked in close collaboration with the fine artist Carin Berger, who herself conducted considerable field operations in preparing Mr. Prelutsky’s specimens for exhibition and publication. While many creatures (two dozen species in all) were discovered and recorded and their precise qualities examined, we are presenting sixteen here for the first time, for the enjoyment and education of the general public.

    As soon as Fred gets out of bed, his underwear goes on his head. His mother laughs, "Don't put it there, a head's no place for underwear!" But near his ears, above his brains, is where Fred's underwear remains. I am digging a hole in the ceiling in order to gaze at the sky, I began at the end of September, I intend to be done by July.

    Here are more poems bursting to be listened to, chanted, laughed over, and remembered. It would be hard to find a school-age kid who has not read or heard a Prelutsky poem and who does not want to hear another. He plays with the language and encourages listeners to revel in the game. Puns, jokes, wordplay and shape play, wit, silliness, slapstick, and joy abound. Some of the poems are about people, some are about animals. And some are about things that never were (and that one hopes never will be). Be warned: Listen to a poem once and you will love it. Listen to it several times and it will be part of you forever.
