An enjoyable, unputdownable, scandalous retelling of traditional tales like Cinderella and Snow White made funnier and more gruesome in Matthew Fitt’s hilariously honkin couplets in Scots. Roald Dahl took great delight in shocking and surprising his young readers and remains as popular as ever. This first ever translation of Revolting Rhymes into Scots is an exciting addition to the growing number of high quality books available to children and young people to read in the wonderfully rich and expressive Scots tongue.
