Roald Dahl has created a ghastly assortment of wicked beasts getting up to some extraordinary and unmentionable things in this comic collection of verse. Meet the clever pig with a plan to save his bacon, the scorpion who likes to sting, the ginat toad who can jump from England into France, and lots more...(P.S. Beware of all the animals in this book!)
