Roald Dahl wirft hier aus vollen Händen glitzerndes Konfetti unter sein Lesevolk. Heitere Pointen entzücken uns, wenn erzählt wird, wie ein alter Trinker (aber nur bei Regenwetter) zu Geld für seinen Whisky kommt; wie Mr. Botibol ohne Orchester (aber mit gewaltigem Applaus) das 5. Klavierkonzert von Beethoven dirigiert, als Solistin eine Klavierlehrerin an einem Bechstein-Flügel, dem kein Ton entspringt; wie die beiden pfiffigen Gründer der ‹Mein-ist-die-Rache-GmbH› so berühmt werden konnten, dass sie zu Opfern ihrer eigenen Firma zu werden drohen. Und wenn Roald Dahl in respektlosen Versen die wahre Geschichte von Aschenbrödel ausplaudert oder die von Schneewittchen und den sieben Jockeys, von Rotkäppchen und dem Wolf und den drei kleinen Schweinchen, können wir uns auf Unerwartbares gefasst machen. «Putzmuntere Erzählstückchen. Der Meister der Pointe enttäuscht nicht.» (Rhein-Zeitung)

THE FAIRY STORIES YOU WERE NOT TOLD AS A CHILD. More than 30 years after the publication of the original book, this book is a homage, albeit more basic, to Roald Dahl and his "Revolting Rhymes." Read the true stories behind the myths, but take heed of the title of this book and the warning in the Prologue, "Alas, because of verity, As you, dear reader, will soon see, These stories can be somewhat crude And some might think they're slightly rude." + "And if you've little ones about Don't read aloud and do not shout. But if you must, then guard their fears By using cheese to block their ears!" If you are not inhibited by this advice you will read about the three little pigs and the wolf "He suffered from digestive gas In his rear and prone to pass" and "Jack, vision blurred, head feeling thick, Had only thoughts of being sick" Sleeping Beauty who was "Working quietly by the fire Spinning strands of sharp barbed wire" and the idiot Prince who thought "That Princesses, if they were true, Didn't need to use the loo"

Sean has created an impressive book here, anyone who is already familiar with his work will know that books do not get any ruder than his. For anybody who hasn't come across his work before, it is packed with jaw-dropping material. It is possibly one or the most disgusting books ever written, Having said that his work is also very funny as well. Admittedly it's not to everyone's taste, but for those with a broad-minded sense of humour his books can be very amusing. All of the material in his books is written by him, there is nothing included by any other authors. This edition is as the name suggests is a compilation of his first two books, Lewd Limericks volumes I an II and Rude and Witty Limericks. The last book is a slightly toned down combination of the first two, but with some of the extreme sexual material either dropped or censored. Having said that it still manages to deliver in the same manner as the first two. There is a small amount of new material here well. The big bonus in Sean's latest book is the inclusion of ten rhymes as well. Their style and content follow a similar pattern to the limericks. I think they are very interesting in their own right. They have never been published before. Not suitable for children.

Und dann war er da! Acht Meter groß war er. Seinen schwarzen Umhang trug er so elegant wie ein vornehmer Herr. Die dünne Trompete hatte er immer noch in der Hand. So schritt er würdevoll über den königlichen Parkrasen auf das Fenster zu. Die Zofe kreischte. Die Königin seufzte. Und Sophiechen winkte. Der gute Riese GuRie pustet den Menschenkindern mit einer Trompete schöne Träume in die Schlafzimmer – bis Sophiechen ihn eines Nachts dabei entdeckt. Kurzerhand nimmt sie der GuRie mit ins Riesenland, wo nicht alle Riesen so nett sind wie er. Ganz im Gegenteil: Sie fressen sogar Menschen! Gemeinsam schmieden Sophiechen und der Riese einen Plan, wie sie den bösen Riesen ein für alle Mal das Handwerk legen können. Doch dafür brauchen sie die Hilfe der englischen Königin ...
