ABOUT THIS BOOK

I guess you think you know this story.
You don’t. The real one’s much more gory.
The phoney one, the one you know,
Was cooked up years and years ago. . . .


With his famous wicked humor and the cunning of a big bad wolf, master storyteller and satirist Roald Dahl retells his six favorite fairy tales. Get ready for Dahl’s diabolical version of what really happened to Cinderella, Goldilocks, the Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White, and Little Red Riding Hood.

This book has been selected as a Common Core State Standards Text Exemplar (Grades 4-5, Poetry) in Appendix B.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

Roald Dahl is, quite simply, one of the best loved children’s book authors of all time.
He died in 1990 in Oxford, England, at the age of 74.

Quentin Blake, the first Children’s Laureate of the United Kingdom, has illustrated most of Roald Dahl’s children’s books.
