Revolting Rhymes
If you thought you knew the stories of some of the most popular fairy tales, think again. Here are six of the best known tales retold with more than a twist or two, by that master of the comic and the bloodcurdling, Roald Dahl.

Dirty Beasts
Meet Roald Dahl's ghastly menagerie of wonderful comic animals. The collection includes the poor toad that jumps to France, the pig who ponders on the meaning of life, and the anteater who gets the wrong end of the stick.

From AudioFile:

This book is a gem if you are any kind of Roald Dahl fan. Bringing Dahl's gruesome humor and creativity with words together with Alan Cumming's incredible Scottish accent is an exceptional combination. Cumming's pacing, easy rhythmic cadences, and vocal acrobatics enhance the poems and stories, adding a vibrancy and expression that would otherwise be lessened. His expressive performance adds to the shock of the unexpected endings, creating an unforgettable book. (Occasional language may offend--adults should listen first.) W.L.S.
