Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I love this collection of Dahl's retelling of fairy tales. The story of Goldie Locks is particularly great. I mean when you actually think about that story, what are we teaching kids by making her the heroine? Instead of the classic stories, Dahl gives each plot a twist that hits closer to home and skips the cheesy happy endings. They are delightful.
Purchased first Revolting Recipes book when my children were in elementary school. Then got the More Revolting Recipes. These books have have been repeatedly picked up and browsed over and borrowed. (The "children" are now grown.) For example, those Mudburgers are outrageous; have made them for family dinners and adult gatherings to this day. Can't think of what to cook tonight? Try something different with Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes and More Revolting Recipes. The recipes are delicious with an added bonus of Mr. Dahl's humor and funny illustrations to complement the recipe. I have given Mr Dahl's cookbooks as gifts to adult friends, little people friends, to CIA graduates, brides-to-be, anyone that loves to cook and have some fun in their ordinary life.
Roald Dahl's book is super. You learn to make scrumpdidiumsios recipes and see if you like them or not!
