Kids’ Club Review by Anna: Revolting rhymes

Revolting rhymesRevolting rhymes, by Roald Dahl

This book is a little bit different. It has rhymes from fairy tales but they are REVOLTING. I love this book as it is funny, revolting, and not silly like some fairy tales. I would recommend this book to all children who like Roald Dahl.

Kids’ Club Review by Zahra: Revolting rhymes

Revolting rhymesRevolting rhymes, by Roald Dahl

This book is about fairytales but it has a little mix. The stories are changed into very funny rhymes.

I thought the book was amazing. The stories made me feel like I was there in the stories. Some of the characters were imaginary and some felt real. I liked the way it was written because it had rhyming words. It made me laugh. I loved it.

My favourite characters where are the girls like Cinderella, Goldilocks and Little Red Riding Hood. I didn’t like the bad guys. I really liked the pictures that went along with the stories.

If I could give this book another title it would be Fairytale Rhymes by Roald Dahl. I learnt there can be more than one ending to stories. I would recommend this book to friends because it was funny and I enjoyed reading it. There were no boring parts. Boys and girls of all ages would like this book. It was similar to other books by Roal Dahl except that it had rhymes.

In early-1900s Japan, Misuzu Kaneko grew from a precocious bookworm to an instantly-beloved children’s poet, but her life ended prematurely and her work was largely forgotten. Decades later, her poems were rediscovered just in time to touch a new generation devastated by the tsunami of 2011. This volume includes a biography of Kaneko followed by a selection of her poems in both English and the original Japanese.
