The fantastic Roald Dahl (author of The Big Friendly Giant, The Gremlins, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and more) applied his extraordinary wit to reinvent six tales we all love. Imagine the fun - in Dahl's version, Snow White is the boss of a gang of gambling dwarves; Little Red Riding Hood collects wolf-skin coats, and Cinderella decides it's best not to marry the prince. Each of these reinventions is a magnificent, hilarious gem in rhyme, which I will have the pleasure of reading for you.
