Penguin Audiobokos presents a brand new recording of Roald Dahl's classics Dirty Beasts and Revolting Rhymes, read by Stephen Mangan, Tamsin Greig, and Miriam Margolyes In Dirty Beasts we meet a ghastly menagerie of wonderfully comic animals that can only have been invented by Roald Dahl. There is the toad that jumps to France - at his own peril; the pig who ponders the meaning of life; the anteater who gets the wrong end of the stick; and many more. Snigger, titter and laugh at their antics in this collection of irreverent and absurdly comic verse! In Revolting Rhymes think again if you thought you knew the stories of some of the most popular fairy tales. Here are six of the best known retold, with more than a twist or two, by the master of the comic and the blood-curdling.
