A small paperback edition of Roald Dahl's Dirty Beasts.

"Now here comes the rather grisly bit
So let's not make too much of it,
Except that you must understand
That piggy did eat Farmer Bland..."

Roald Dahl has created a ghastly assortment of beasts including the child-eating crocky-wock, the farmer-eating pig, and the loud and rumbly tummy beast. They get up to some extraordinary and unmentionable things in this comic collection of verse.

Dirty Beasts includes the poems:

• The Pig
• The Crocodile
• The Lion
• The Scorpion
• The Ant-eater
• The Porcupine
• The Cow
• The Toad and the Snail
• The Tummy Beast
