Roald Dahl Revolting Rhymes

Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes have been a family favourite since it was published in 1982. For the uninitiated, Revolting Rhymes were Roald Dahl’s reimagining of six classic fairy tales. Of course, being Roald Dahl, nothing is straightforward. These fairy tales are gross, bloodthirsty, and most importantly hilarious. Sir Quentin Blake’s illustrations combine with Dahl’s poetry to make this book really special. Blake’s trademark style is let loose, emphasising the spiky humour of the stories. Who can forget Blake’s drawing of Little Red Riding Hood drying her hair, while on the phone to one of the Three Little Pigs? Sir Quentin Blake has produced a series of six limited edition prints from the Revolting Rhymes stories. The illustration is placed next to an extract from the story, to emphasise what the illustration is about. They are available in a whitewashed wooden frame with charcoal grey highlights or oak moulding. A free Revolting Rhymes paperback book is also included. To quote the Big Bad Wolf. ‘Have you forgot to tell me what BIG TEETH I’ve got? Ah well, no matter what you say, I’m going to eat you anyway.’
