Summary

Penguin presents Revolting Rhymes by Roald Dahl, complete and unabridged and raucously read by Miriam Margolyes, Stephen Mangan, and Tamsin Greig. This audiobook also contains original music.

You can 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.

Great poems. Bad value for money.

These are super poems read wonderfully. But at £18 for 35 minutes it's very bad value. Should have been packaged with another book for this price/time.

A joyous treat for young and old

What a treat to have such accomplished actors read Roald Dahl. I had never read this as a child, but adulthood has not prevented me from delighting in these tales.

Do go on to listen to the other delightful Roald Dahl audiobooks that have recently been recorded by such a great cast as these.
