    About "Roald Dahl Quentin Blake"

    1. Roald Dahl Quentin Blake

      Roald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer and screenwriter of Norwegian descent, who rose to prominence in the 1940 s with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world s bestselling authors.Dahl s first published work, inspired by a meeting with C S Forester, was Shot Down Over Libya Today the story is published as A Piece of Cake The story, about his wartime adventures, was bought by the Saturday Evening Post for 900, and propelled him into a career as a writer Its title was inspired by a highly inaccurate and sensationalized article about the crash that blinded him, which claimed he had been shot down instead of simply having to land because of low fuel.His first children s book was The Gremlins, about mischievous little creatures that were part of RAF folklore The book was commissioned by Walt Disney for a film that was never made, and published in 1943 Dahl went on to create some of the best loved children s stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.He also had a successful parallel career as the writer of macabre adult short stories, usually with a dark sense of humour and a surprise ending Many were originally written for American magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, Harper s, Playboy and The New Yorker, then subsequently collected by Dahl into anthologies, gaining world wide acclaim Dahl wrote than 60 short stories and they have appeared in numerous collections, some only being published in book form after his death His stories also brought him three Edgar Awards in 1954, for the collection Someone Like You in 1959, for the story The Landlady and in 1980, for the episode of Tales of the Unexpected based on Skin.

    1. I really enjoyed this book full of short stories All the short stories were remakes of fairy tales They were all gruesome and some of them even intertwined I highly suggest this book for anyone that likes fairy tales and or anyone that likes Roald Dahl I really feel this was one of his best works, even though it is really short.


    2. Revolting Rhymes Paperback by Roald Dahl is a book I read to my kids and then to my grandkids This book has given everyone giggles in our house from the very young to the very old It is the kind of book that never grows old itself It is a keeper I still have it from many years ago I can not count how many times this poor book has been read It was worth every penny.


    3. I m not going to review this, I m simply going to point out to many of the previous reviewers that the word slut is defined as a dirty, untidy, or slovenly woman It is only in the past 20 years, or so, that the word has commonly become associated with sexual morality or the lack thereof Especially given Roald Dahl s age when he wrote this in the 1980s, I m pretty certain that he did not mean it to have any sexual connotation, especially since cinderella is, by definition, someone who looks dirty [...]


    4. The best poems in this collection are true masterpieces of satire Here s the start of Cinderella I guess you think you know this story.You don t The real one s much gory.The phoney one, the one you know,Was cooked up years and years ago,And made to sound all soft and sappyjust to keep the children happy.Mind you, they got the first bit right,The bit where, in the dead of night,The Ugly Sisters, jewels and all,Departed for the Palace Ball,While darling little CinderellaWas locked up in a slimy c [...]

    6. A short compendium of fifteen tales told by one of the great children s storytellers of all time Dahl uses his wonderful rhyming ability to re tell some of the better known fairy tales to set the record straight Children can marvel at all the things they will learn from Dahl and his mind that spills full of wonderful ideas From there, Dahl takes the reader on to recount a few lesser known members of the animal kingdom, all of whom have special abilities Sure to entertain and impress, Dahl has do [...]


    7. Not nearly as revolting as I would have liked, but still nice rhyming takedowns of some popular fairy tales The best bit is the femme fatale take on Little Red Riding Hood Never mess with a girl who knows how to handle herself around wolves.


    8. This book was alright The twist s of the stories where kinda funny It was short and average so I picked it up and kinda liked it.


    9. Roald Dahl suele ser uno de los escritores de la infancia de muchos ni os, yo incluida Aunque puede que para muchos sea m s conocido por todas las adaptaciones cinematogr ficas de sus cuentos para ni os, como Charlie y la f brica de chocolate o James y el melocot n gigante En Cuentos en verso para ni os perversos nos encontramos con algunos de los cuentos m s conocidos de nuestra ni ez, como puedan ser Blancanieves o Cenicienta, pero al estilo Roald Dahl Me hubiera encantado encontrarme con m s [...]


    10. I may be repeating myself from a previous Roald Dahl review, but I devoured this book like a chocolate bar Dahl has managed to put his delightfully dark spin on fairy tales we know very well or do we by retelling them in rhymes and adding a signature twist ending My favorites were the last two, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs , because they were extremely unpredictable unlike the others This was a quick read for poetry, and it was a good read as well, if I may also say.


    11. Kembali lagi kita dihiburLima kisah pengantar tidurBukan kisah ceria di hari liburTapi banyolan gila dengan lirik melanturCinderela sang putri rupawanHatinya cantik sungguh dermawanSayang, saudarinya tidaklah demikianCulas, iri hati dan keji adalah kebiasaanCinderela memohon ke BundadariKeajaiban agar ia bisa turut menariDi istana megah bestari, ia menjumpai mimpiBerdansa bersama pangeran sang pujaan hatiJam berdentang dua belas kaliKeajaiban Cinderela mencapai akhirBergegas ia segera berlariMen [...]


    12. This was one of my favourite books as a child, I love Roald Dahl s wit in turning the fairytales we all know and love on their heads There are six revolting rhymes retelling famous tales such as Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood, each one being full of gruesome details and full of satire I love how these are really entertaining for children but also very amusing for adults as well, a talent Roald Dahl possesses in spades.


    13. Sometimes when I m hanging out with Patrick, Jeff will come home and hijack him, and they ll start doing something together that I can t or don t want to do Tonight it was Excite Truck on the Nintendo Wii, so I retreated to my room and finished reading an essay by Susan Orlean about Bankock s Khao San Road in an old Best American Travel Writing, and then I read the entire book Revolting Rhymes by Roald Dahl This book was a real treat due entirely to its cleverness.So, then, a little later, we al [...]


    14. 2016 Reading Challenge 1 A book based on a fairy tale Qu librito tan genial Me ha encantado de principio a fin, toda esa iron a y humor negro que acompa a a cada uno de los cuentos, pasando por las maravillosas ilustraciones de Quentin Blake.Si bien no todas las rimas son afortunadas, la esencia y el cometido de estos siniestros cuentitos no se pierde del todo con la traducci n divierte tanto a grandes como a chicos Me gust mucho la despiadada Caperucita tan alejada de la versi n original y el r [...]


    15. I can t remember the last time I read rhymes Decades, perhaps I absolutely loved this collection and had a blast reading all of them out loud to my self _ and with impressions too This is interestingly enough the end of classic stories as we know them I think I like Dahl s version, though.


    16. Roald Dahl memang seorang pawang kataYang sangat piawai membuat cerita berimaDi buku ini kau bisa baca enam dongengYang isinya tidak cengeng cengengYang ada justru kisah kisah tidak biasaYang belum pernah kita dengar sebelumnyaNamun kau perlu menyiapkan hatiKarena cerita cerita di sini bisa membuatmu ngeriPertama adalah kisah Cinderella Yang berkat ibu peri bisa ke istanaCindy ingin menikah dengan pangeran tampanSayanganya hati si pangeran tidak rupawan Ia suka membunuh orangSehingga Cindy berub [...]

Soberbio, magn fico, hilarante, ir nico y s , incluso perverso a ratos hago referencia al magn fico t tulo de la edici n en espa ol Cuentos en verso para ni os perversos Me ha encantado.Lo empec , por costumbre, en su versi n traducida al castellano, y debo reconocer que el traductor ha hecho un trabajo magn fico, traduciendo los versos del ingl s manteniendo el mensaje y la rima Pero tras leer el primer cuento Cenicienta y decidir que iba a seguir adelante con el resto del libro que es cort sim [...]



    18. This rhymed retelling of six popular fairy tales is delightfully revolting, indeed Dahl employs his signature mix of the creepy, the gory and the twisty with a good helping of humour to create new plots for each tale, which in some cases changes everything whilst still keeping the fundamental points and in other cases goes along with the traditional versions and only adds an eleventh hour tweak The rhyming, to me, felt singable and that made them funnier still.Of all those included, my favourite [...]


    19. This book is a collection of children s fairy tales but with a twist This book includes classics such as Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs Roald Dahl has cleverly made these classic fairy tales fun, revolting and sometimes rather gruesome The book is suitable for both children and adults, I loved them as a child and still find them very entertaining now This book would be brilliant [...]


    20. Revolting Rhymes is truly a revolting series of famous fairy tales that have horror twist to each one My most favorite story out this book is Jack and the Beanstalk where Jack has to deal with his insensitive mother while getting some golden leaves from the giant s beanstalk.Quentin Blake s illustrations are both funny and scary at the same time and Roald Dahl s rhyming for this book is fantastic For anyone who love revolting tales from Roald Dahl, Revolting Rhymes is definitely the book for you [...]



    21. Lo mejor, las sonrisas de mi hija cada vez que Dahl suelta alguna de sus astracanadas, subvirtiendo un cuento cl sico a base de humor y mala baba.

    23. No imaginaba que estos versos me har an sonre r, pero sucedi Son cuentos muy conocidos escritos a su manera y qu manera Gran ingenio No imagino a los ni os leyendo estas versiones, aunque me habr a gustado conocer sus impresiones.



    24. This is, perhaps, one of my favourite volumes, ever.With his trademark quirky humour, Dahl brings to readers his versions of the traditional incarnations of several fairy tales These are not the versions made popular by a corporate monolith logo ed with an aw chucks, ain t I cute rodent These are quippy, rhythmic and occasionally startling renditions that recall to mind the fact that fairy tales were originally intended as harsh preventative morality tales in a time when children and adults wer [...]


    25. These rhymes may not be suitable for young children because of the violence and a few words such as slut Older children will love the retellings of Cinderella, Snow White, Red Riding Hood, Three Pigs, and a couple others I would suggest that parents read it first and decide if the stories are appropriate for their children.


    26. Percaya pada Roald Dahl untuk menghancurkan cerita dongeng.Satu, Prince Charming dalam Cinderella memotong kepala kedua saudara tiri Cinderella Siapa yang bisa menyalahkan Cinderella saat dia memutuskan menikah dengan orang biasa, bukan seorang Pangeran Penebas Kepala Moral Mungkin saja Prince Charming seorang psikopat yang biasa menebas kepala orang.Dua, Jack dalam Jack and the Beanstalk selamat dari raksasa karena dia mandi, jadi baunya tidak tercium si raksasa.Moral mandi akan menyelamatkan h [...]
