A collection of (mainly) grisly beasts out for human blood, ranging from Crocky-Wock the crocodile to Sting-A-Ling the scorpion. Described in verse with all Dahl's usual gusto and illustrated in a suitably wicked style by Quentin Blake. Was that CROCKY-WOCK galumphing up the stairs? Is STING-A-LING hiding in your bed? And what foul fate has PIGGY planned for Farmer Bland? WARNING! This book contains wickedly funny verse, prickly surprises and the most despicable creatures you could ever hope (not) to meet.

      Dirty beasts review Nicole 9 years This story is about beasts that live around the world. The beasts are the lion,the pig,the crocodile the ant-eater etc. The dirty beasts are not nice with any boy or girl in the world and they eat kids. The dirty beasts are the warts beasts ever. Do you think the dirty beasts would continue torturing people?,read the book and you will see. I enjoyed this book because is really funny,and if you read it you will find really funny things in it. My favorite part is when the farmer eats the pig because if you see it you will find it fun. I recommend this book to kids that like funny stories. kids between 6 and 12 years will liked it.
