Love this! Fairy tales in verse with Dahl's signature twists. My favorite is the take on Cinderella...where an ugly stepsister makes a quick swap of the lost slipper with her own fat shoe. Prince Charming finds her and is repulsed by what he sees, so he chops the disgusting girl's head off. Cinderella witnesses the head-chopping brutality and says to heck with this guy! I will be finding a copy of this for my bookshelf.
