Revolting Rhymes by Roald Dahl 1st / 1st 1982
First edition and first print published by Jonathan Cape in 1982. This is a near fine copy. The laminate pictoral boards are very clean, bright and fresh without tanning marks. Very little wear present at all. No dust wrapper as issued. There is one light scratch to the front board. Overall a near fine copy.
A parody of traditional folk tales in verse, Dahl gives a re-interpretation of six well-known fairy tales, featuring surprise endings in place of the traditional happily-ever-after finishes. The poems are illustrated by Quentin Blake.
