Revolting Rhymes - Roald Dahl

A must for any Pagan/Witchy family library, Roald Dahl's twisted sense of humour strikes a chord in the heart of the twisted mind.

Wish I had him to read as a kid! He is absolutely...well.....dark!

Here is an excerpt from his version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears:

But Goldilocks like many freaks,
Does not appreciate antiques,
She doesn't care, she doesn't mind,
And now she plonks her fat behind
Upon this dainty precious chair.
And crunch! It busts beyond repair.


A judge would say without a blink,
"Ten years hard labour in the clink!"
But in the book, as you would see,
The little beast gets off scot-free,
While tiny children near and far,
Shout,"Goody-good! Hooray!Hurray!

This is an absolute must to get for your kids...loads of fun and we rolled with laughter!

And its available in the Trinidad National Library....the Children's Section of course. Or buy your own below!
